Description: Next Whistle Stop: The 14th Annual Troop 964 Model Train Show Manassas, VA - This year’s BSA Troop 964 Train Show is bigger and better than ever and all proceeds will benefit Troop 2 in Ishinomaki, Japan that was devastated by the tsunami last year. Model-railroad enthusiasts, Boy Scouts, and those who just enjoy the whimsy of miniature trains will gather at Saunders Middle School March 10 and 11 for the 14th Annual Troop 964 Model Train Show. Boy Scout Troop 964 will also offer a series of workshops that will allow about 160 local scouts to earn their Boy Scout Railroading merit badges. The annual show, which is open to the public, features dozens of model train “modules” – intricately decorated sections of model-railroad tracks and scenery -- created by members of several Washington, D.C.-area model-railroading clubs. Club members link their individual modules together to form model-railroad layouts large enough to fill the school’s main gymnasium and several other large classrooms. Sponsored by Boy Scout Troop 964 since 1998, the show has come to feature one of the largest recurring HO-scale model train layouts in the Mid-Atlantic, according to Fred Wetzel, Troop 964’s train show chairman. In addition to the HO-scale trains, the show also features a several other sizes of model trains, including N-, G-,O-, S-, T- and Z-gauge trains. Lionel trains, Lego trains and a steam-powered model train will also be on display. The 14th Annual Troop 964 Model Railroad Show is an opportunity for anyone with an interest in model trains to marvel at the miniature world created by these talented, local model railroad enthusiasts and to be amazed by the advances the digital age has brought to the age-old hobby of model railroading. Want to go? The 14th Annual Troop 964 Model Railroad Show will be Saturday, March 10, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, March 11, 11:00 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saunders Middle School, 13557 Spriggs Rd., Manassas, Va.
