I covered one of the many Model Train shows that takes place in Temple ever few months. This was the CentraMOD Inc. 's annual show at the Frank W. Mayborn Civic & Convention Center. The show had over 100 vendors as well as workshops for those interested in Model Rail Roading. What really caught my interest was the age range interested in model trains older folks, kids and everyone one in between. I never really considered model trains as way for people to create community, always pictured a lone dude sitting in his basement lit by a single light bulb, but now I can see that I was completely wrong about that. Its a pretty weird vibrant community.
