WHAT: The Greenspring Railroad Club will host a two-day Model Railroad Train Show May 10-11 at the retirement community.  Two Virginia railroad clubs will bring their modular railroad layouts; one layout, modelled in N scale, will be provided by the Northern Virginia NTRAKers (www.nvntrak.org) and a second layout, modelled in HO scale, will be provided by the Piedmont Railroaders of Warrenton (www.trainweb.org/PiedmontRR/).  Greenspring Railroad Club president, Bill Lee, is also a member of the Piedmont club.  The type of scale refers to the model's measurement as a proportion to the original.
