The 12 members of the River City 3 Railers reached over 46,000 people in the Richmond, VA area last year, in 37 days of public displays at Richmond’s children’s and science museums, county and village fairs, and a storefront display during the holiday season. Their modular layout includes a carnival with operating roller coaster and a 6’ bridge inspired by the B&O’s Port Royal Viaduct. The club noted that “handing the throttle to visitors and moving from a ‘look but don’t touch’ mentality to ‘here, you run the train’ approach has been very successful for us. Many guests have returned and brought one of their own trains to run. It is a special treat for us to see a visitor’s delight in running their own train on ‘the big layout.’” Back to Blue Comet Award Winners
