Our layout is, at heart, an attempt to show the visitor how logging took place along the Mendocino Coast in the late 1800’s through the early 1949’s. But, as Frank Davis our Chief Operating Officer will tell you, a little whimsy is VERY popular with guests. Frank provides whimsy with a pack of Minions that have descended upon the layout. Frank is continually moving our Minions tribe around – so, you just never know what you might find those despicable little yellow fiends doing. One day the Minions decided that hijacking a MOW (Maintenance of Way) yarder and a Crummy belonging to the loggers was a good idea!
Here are the boys off on their adventure.
Hijack under way ……
HOLD IT, HOLD It, HOLD IT ……… we’ve forgotten two of the guys!!!!!!
Come on – pedal to the metal – we’re being followed!!!!
Is this fun or what?????
Want to see what the boys are up to right now? Come on by our railroad……..
We have a Lego train layout at our layout (The Mendocino Coast Model Railroad & Historical Society) for the kids. So every time I get a heads up on Lego trains I ‘m on it as quick as lightening. So, fasten your seat belt and hop on board.
Mesmerizing isn’t it? Did you notice the number of super duper Lego trains the guy has? And how much did all that track cost? Amazing.
Thanks to daughter Annalise for the heads up.
And the Lego Minion? Do you remember in the first movie one of the Minions makes a xerox copy of his butt?
Well how about a Minion made of Lego making a copy of his butt?
A very serious young lady who came to visit the layout asked me how many Minions there were on the layout. I had to confess I didn’t know. She then asked if I knew where they all were. I said, “no.” I promised her I would take pictures of them all and put the pictures here on the blog. We agreed she would tot up the number and e-mail so’s I would know. So, I took the pics and …… my e-mail is email@example.com
You don’t believe me? First of all 13 arrived and today another 15 appeared out of nowhere lookin’ for the party to end all parties. Then all the kids from the pre-school with their mums and dads trolled in and ……. a great time was had by all.
Where’s the party?
Strange joint this for a party
