Local O Scale Layout Has Open House for TCA Show.
Local historian and model railroader Tristan Mundis had his layout open for an evening after the York TCA spring show. We were invited to stop by if we had a chance after the show on Friday.
Tristan has been collecting trading and selling O Scale model trains for many years, many of you are probably familiar with seeing his ads on Facebook Marketplace. It was nice to see some of the products we have sold him over the years and where all of those shakers of Woodland Scenic's ended up.
As we walked down the stairs to the basement the smell and haze of JT Mega Steam filled the air. The layout is approximately 17x12 with a double track mainline with many sidings. He uses both MTH DCS and Lionel Legacy to control the trains. He was running a variety of equipment many with local ties to the area including the Yorkrail, Maryland & Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania Railroads. There are many vehicles, figures and details making every scene complete.
