The second club Hi-Rail layout is approximately 9′ x 17′ and features a wide variety of accessories to please train lovers of all ages! The new layout made its debut at the Spring S Spree held in Marion, Ohio in May, 2014. Numerous additions and improvements have been each to the layout each year ever since. Our trackwork, accessories and scenery have recently been updated for the 2017/2018 show season.
One end of the layout features a diorama section that is periodically updated. The original section which is shown in the video below, had a Plasticville village with an operating streetcar. For the current season, a siding off the mainline has been added to provide a location for a circus train to be parked next to a circus with operating Ferris wheel and Merry-Go-Round. Plans for the shows beginning with the November 2018 Greenberg’s Train and Toy show include a winter diorama with a Christmas train on the siding. Periodically the circus train and the Christmas take a few loops on the outer mainline tracks!
The YouTube video below was taken at the Greenberg’s Train and Toy Show on Sunday, November 13, 2016. Also see photos below.
