DelmarvaLife Show and Tell, Model Trains
We’re having show and tell – DelmarvaLife style!
Last month, Charlie Paparella showed us some really interesting old books about Delmarva.
We asked our viewers if they had anything to share with us for show and tell. That’s how we found out about Frank Brown and his model trains.
Sean stopped by Frank’s house in Ocean Pines to check out his O-gauge train layout.
Frank started when he was a kid and as they got older, things were put in boxes and packed away. When he had children, he brought the trains back out of those boxes and set up train sets with his kids.
He says you start out with a plywood base, lay the tracks, and then set up the scenery, which Frank says is the fun part since he used to be a builder.
Frank has a permanent display and then he has a separate display set up just for the holidays that people enjoy looking at when they stop by his home.
