WUCF airs salute to model trains in Central Florida
Tonight on WUCF, explore the many model railroad clubs across Central Florida and see the creativity, engineering and hard work that goes into this popular hobby.
Featured groups include:
- Titusville Area Model Railroad Club
- Orlando N-Trak Club
- Blue Springs Model Railroad
- Central Florida Railroad Modelers
- Orlando Society of Model Railroaders
- DeLand & Atlantic Railroad Club
- The Villages Model Railroad Club
- Meadowbrook Model Railroaders
- Florida East Coast Railway Society
- Florida Garden Railway Society
From grand designs to new technology, these organizations are chugging along keeping traditions alive.
Some groups are seeing a surge of new, younger members, while others are struggling. “I encourage parents to get their child into some kind of hobby; model airplanes, model trains, model boats. It’s craftsmanship, learning how to be skilled with their hands, it stimulates their thinking,” said Hal Maynard of the Orlando Society of Model Railroaders
WUCF’s Making Tracks will air Thursday, December 11 on WUCF TV at 8:30 p.m.
