Railroad model club

The Penn State Model Railroad Club was founded by Glen Van Winkle and received official recognition as a Penn State Club on March 23rd, 1955. They had organized an exhibition of this, with over 2500 feet of a complex networks of track, fully automated trains scaled down to 1:87. It was amazing… and pictures can do only so much justice to a feeling of complete awe we guys had when we saw the magnificence.
Seeing them move flawlessly through the complicated network was the best part. On the lighter side, they provided sound effects in the engines too!
