Akron Mini Maker Faire 2019

On Saturday October 12th 2019, the Akron-Summit County Public Library hosted the Akron Mini Maker Faire at their downtown Akron location. For the second year in a row the Western Reserve Free-Mo had a display set up for the event.

Tim Moran was the sole supplier of modules for the show, highlighted by his Canton Ohio W&LE Freight House modules. These modules were are actually built to be both a part of his layout and modular to be brought to shows.

Brendan and I helped Tim set up, run trains and promote the hobby of model railroading to the crowds.

Hopefully I can finally supply a module of my own later this year.

Please enjoy a few photos of the event, click on the photos for a larger view.
