Model Citizens: A Documentary Project
« on: January 30, 2014, 02:20:48 PM »
Below are links to two short video clips from the Model Citizens: A Documentary Project website operated by San Diego-based documentary film maker and journalism professor Sara Kelly. 

Sara has begun interviewing model railroaders and railfans from around Southern California about our hobby and the fascination trains have for so many of us.  Eventually scores of people from all phases of the hobby, including layout owners, club members, hobby shop operators, model railroad photographers, collectors and others, will be interviewed for this documentary with many of the video interviews appearing in the eventual movie.
