Today I went to the annual Super Train model train show with my friend Arthur. We also went last year. There was some new model train groups there this year, some missing from last year, and a lot of carryover from the previous year. I’ve been going to this show since I was young; back then with my father.
It’s amazing how far the technology has come over the years. When I was young it was a simple electric motor with a rheostat-like control to adjust the amount of power going to the train. It was difficult to have more than one train on a track at a given time. Fast forward to today and the systems are sophisticated computer controlled systems that you can run multiple trains on the same track at the same time, even at different speeds. The trains can have sounds, and lights, and you can even remote disconnect cars. It’s absolutely mind blowing what computers can do for us.
Anyways… take a look at some of the pictures I took at the train show!
