Building Dedication
July 21, 2001 ribbon cutting
Two years after we bought our property, our clubhouse is ready to move in to. We invite family and guests and have a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and then play with trains on our modules that have laid in storage for too long.


From this humble beginning ...


... our dreams start to arise ...


... until at last we have our permanent clubhouse!



Our visionary President, Steve Hashagen, cuts the ribbon to officially open our Clubhouse.

The old and the new

Lots of activity

At the Station

You want me to do what?!

Oh no!

Willie at the throttle

Tropicana, anyone? Jerry runs his juice train.

Take a break and have a snack

More trains

Something for everyone, although none of the kids are playing on it. 
They must all be in the other room, playing with trains!
