Manassas Railway Festival in Manassas, Virginia on June 1, 2002
We had a display on Saturday, June 1, 2002 at the Manassas Railway Festival. There were plenty of trains, vehicles, structures, and vignettes for visitors to enjoy. We gave away almost half a box (of 500) business cards with our sponsoring users group’s new logo.
Yes, it was sunny
We had a big crowd
Our layout was designed by Aaron Sneary.
The crash of a Star Wars vessel on the roof of Kevin’s office park suburban building causes a commotion for the emergency response teams in the neighborhood.
Roy’s railroad station
Kevin’s Metrorail cars
Kevin was seduced by the dark side when he accepted stickers of the WMATA “M” to apply to his Metrorail cars. Constantine had taken the opportunity at the last show to study Kevin’s design sufficiently intently to make his own version, and also supplied a transport vehicle for an idle car.
Claudia’s crossing gate
Now THAT’s a pretty container!
One of our newer members designed this sticker as a proposal for the train club swap planned for later this year.
Kevin’s cell towers
A few new things, too
Is that a light saber handle Constantine is using as a sconce on his Pizza Hut? Yes, it is. Good eye, kids.
8-wides a flop in face of tilted layout
The parking lot in which the tent had been pitched had a slope to it.
Oh, yeah, didn’t we bring a banner with WAMALUG’s new logo?
Participants in attendance: Stephen Roberts, Denise Jadud, Kevin Loch, Tom Cook, Rich Schamus, Christina Hitchcock, Abe Friedman, Greg Kramer, Margaret Keys, Cris Berneburg, Roy Gal, Claudia Coles, Constantine Hannaher, John “Fuzzface” McMahon.
Scenes of mayhem, oh, my
A warrant served, and the local news is all over it, while horror unfolds only a few baseplates away…
Too weird for any other heading
Made entirely of Technic parts (except for the 2878 Train Wheels 2) Constantine’s “Bionicle” car attracted attention from devotees.
