SPECIAL EVENT

THE WORLDS GREATEST HOBBY

Dates: September 11, and September 25, 2004
 
Location: Katy Geissert Civic Center Library
                  3301 Torrance Blvd.
                   Torrance, Ca 90503
 

As part of the “WORLD'S GREATEST HOBBY” program members of the Los Angles Model Railroad Society in conjunction with the library’s youth services program, constructed a 4 by 8  foot HO scale layout. The layout was built to the WGH plan and followed the steps presented in the construction video. The track, engine, cars, structure kits, and control system plus other material and supplies were provided by the sponsors of the "World's Greatest Hobby" program. Different aspects of construction were done in clinic form so that the youngsters received step by step instruction. During the construction the instructional video for the project was run so observers could compare where we were in the project and those who came late or had to leave could see what they missed. In order to spend the necessary time with the demonstrations repeat steps, such as building additional structures, were previously completed. At the programs completion a drawing was held and one lucky youngster became the layout's new owner.  The program was well received by some very interested youngsters and their parents.
