Thunderbird Model RR Club Operations
2013 AZ State Fair

The 2013 Arizona State fair runs October 11th thru November 3rd this year (closed Mondays & Tuesdays) and once again the club will host continuous train operations during the fair hours.

During the fair, club members load up the rails with their favorite equipment so it is not uncommon to see a vintage steam locomotive waiting on a siding as a modern diesel roars past. The club also uses this time during the Fair to break the layout into 3 loops instead of the point to point operation we usually run. This allows us to increase the traffic on the layout so the young and young-at-heart won't need to wait at a window long before something new comes into view. See if you or your little one can find the Incredible Hulk - he's there right in plain site!

We will feature new pictures and videos from the fair each week, placing the newest items first. So come on back to this page and enjoy as our members showcase some of their finest equipment.


Week 2 of the AZ State Fair

The second week of the 2013 AZ State Fair brought us good weather and plenty of action on the Phoenix, Turnbow, and Apache district of the Thunderbird Model railroad Club layout. Enjoy a few moments recalling your youth as you view the picture galleries.
