MichLTC at NMRA National Train Show 2006
MichLTC at the 2006 NMRA National Train Show in Philadelphia.
About this creation
The Michigan Lego Train Club joined eight other Lego train clubs to put together a very large display at the NMRA National Train Show held in Philadelphia from July 7 -9, 2006.

This show saw the debut of my 7.5 foot high David Stott Building (MichLTC), a model of the Indianapolis train station (IndyLUG), the Polar Express (TCLTC), and many other new Lego creations.

The initial picture shows the downtown portion of the MichLTC display which features elements from Detroit, Chicago, and New York as well as original creations. I was one of five MichLTC members who participated. I brought the three tallest buildings on MichLTC layout including the dark orange David Stott Building.

Please review the Brickshelf folder for a more complete look at the show.

Wow! I have been to a Train show that had a lego city included with it, but it was not as big or complex as this. Did you help build this or did you just take pictures?
