Video: American OO at Trainfest 2013

November 9-10, 2013 you will find American OO in operation at Trainfest in Milwaukee, "America’s Largest Operating Model Railroad Show." The event link is here, but a preview of the layout is below! (Direct video link here).

The layout is by Mike Slater. He has displayed the layout before (see this article for two older versions), but this year it looks to be in especially fine shape. In particular it is great to see this 1938 set running, both just to see how nice a product it was but also to allow people to see these vintage models in motion. Seeing such models run at a train show will catch some attention!

The models run nicely, this is a video well worth watching for any American OO enthusiast. If you are in the area of the show be sure to stop by and see it running in person.
