52nd Atlanta Model Train Show

The 52nd Atlanta Model Train Show was held at the Infinite Energy Forum in Duluth, GA. The Forum is a wonderful place to hold an event and the Atlanta Model Train Show did not disappoint.

There were plenty of items to buy in various gauges of N, HO, and O, plus others.

Several operating layouts were also running throughout the day. The detail on many of these model railroad modules was fantastic.

The 52nd Atlanta Model Train Show was a nice show with plenty to see and buy. We will probably make a trip back to this one in the future.

A Visit to the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum

We took a road trip to visit the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum in Bryson City, NC. This museum houses a large collection of Lionel trains, cars, and accessories.

Visiting Biltmore Estate at Christmas

Biltmore Estate during Christmas is a wonderful experience. We are annual pass holders so the Christmas at Biltmore Daytime Celebration is included. Reservations are still required to enter the house but annual pass holders aren't charged extra for the self guided tour. A bonus for pass holders is that you get up close parking as well.

Waynesville - A Night Before Christmas

Every year on the second Saturday of December Waynesville, North Carolina closes down Main Street for their "A Night Before Christmas" celebration. It is a small town get-together to usher in the Christmas season.

Block Party in Waynesville

As we walked to Downtown Waynesville we could hear the first of three bands that were playing on Main Street during the Waynesville Block Party. Main Street was closed to car traffic and the The Dirty Soul Revival was cranking out some jammin' rock tunes.

Getting our stink on at the Waynesville Ramp Festival

Ah, the Ramp. The Hillbilly Bouquet of Love.  A stinky little wild onion that tastes like a cross between an onion and a garlic clove. We have been warned that if you eat too many you will stink for at least three days! We set out for the American Legion Post 47 in Waynesville, NC for the 84th Annual Ramp Festival. This small town in Appalachian country is a perfect host for such a festival.
