Train Shows

The Bat Cave


The OT&W marks the start of a new year of train shows, and with the star of a new Year we wanted to do something new. For those of you who braved the storm, we hope you were rewarded by what you saw. We know that we certainly were. Your gasps of joy and that impromptu round of applause was music to our ears. With new scenes from Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean , Lord of the Rings, a new Zoo, the Bat Cave in LEGO City, and enhanced Oz Scene, and new trains we think we’ve brought out our “A” Game. what did you think?

The Annual Hostler’s Train show was great!!!
As a club we got some great press from the Likes of KSL’s Doug Wright who on Air said that

the best part of the Show is the Lego display…every year they add something new. This year there’s Plexi glass so the kids can get right up to [the LEGO]”

We couldn’t agree more. This show featured Travis Levi Murphy’s Wizard of Oz Diorama, as the newest addition to the layout. and it was impressive. Click on the Image above to check out pics of it or some of the other sections of the layout.

If you missed it don’t sweat, We’ll be showing it and the whole layout again at the upcoming Trapper Trails council Scout O Rama.
