Thank You Spring Creek!

We are back home from our weekend in Deshler, NE, at the Spring Creek Model Trains train show and open house. A big thank you to Dave and Deb (and the whole Spring Creek crew) for hosting a wonderful event and allowing us to be part of it. If you are ever in the Deshler area, be sure to stop in and take a look around. You won’t be disappointed!
