2015 HOBBY: Second Life Crazy Train Rally. For railroaders everywhere

Second Life Crazy Train Rally.  
For railroaders everywhere.
Model railroads in a virtual world.  Low cost.  Take no space in your house.  Do not require dusting.  Carry with you on your laptop.  Work on them with your fellow rail fans.  Ride through worlds other people have built.  Show off your train to your friends when they show you pictures of their trip to France.   What's not to like?

  • Sponsored by the Virtual Railway Consortium.
  • Held on the Second Life Railroad,
  • It is over now, but the video lingers on.
  • Starter stuff: a free Open Source VCR Train and your imagination.
  • Think Mardi Gras Floats. Think Color. Think Crazy.
  • Free, Family Friendly, non-combative event. Open to all.
