Greenberg’s Toy and Train Show in Upper Marlboro, Maryland on February 9 and 10, 2002
Locomotives and rolling stock
The distinctive shapes and Class A railroad liveries of Constantine’s locomotives in particular elicited knowing expressions of recognition from our train-savvy visitors.
…with a neat set of angles to its end (which wobbled as the train flew down the track and around the curves).
Our layout was designed by Bob Hayes.
We had a pair of trolleys controlled by an RCX so that one would start up as the other arrived at the station. While they ran really fast on Saturday, more realistic speeds were achieved on Sunday.
Kevin’s Metrorail cars
Shortening them to a non-prototypical length improved their structural integrity and operational performance (slightly).
Bob’s movie theater
Modeled after a photograph Constantine found in the book
Lost America: From the Atlantic to the Mississippi
and representing The National Exchange Bank of Hartford, Connecticut which in the original bore a
sign near its top and was demolished in 1917.
The sculpture of a pair of Bukharan Jew performers was Judy’s entry in the 1st International SYSTEM Creativity Contest last year.
