Our group of G-scalers was invited to run our trains at the Idaho Botannical Garden aglow during late November through early January. We received lots of positive comments regarding our hobby and the addition to the garden glow. We did notice some difficulties with our sound systems during the quite cold evenings. The motor decoders (most Digitrax) seemed to work fine. All-in-all it was an enjoyable opportunity to share our hobby with our neighbors and friends.

Man do I love Idaho. I spent 4 great years in Mt Home at Mt AFB. In the sixties. There is a beautiful train Station in Boise. I was a city boy. Born and Raised on the South Side of Chicago. When I got out of the AF I found I could not stand Cities.

Finally I moved back out west.

Glad to hear that your Display was so successful
