"I don't travel as much anymore, because I did all over the country with models," he said. "This all comes apart the idea is that it is portable and very easily transported."
Following the NTrak scale really opens the door to many possibilities.
"NTrak is national, so I can go anywhere in the country to an NTrak show I can show up and say I want to be in the layout," he said.
Matt Giardino, vice president and publications for the museum, said there was a good turnout during the day and estimated around 100 people came.
"I believe this was a success," said Giardino. "We don't have a lot to show, but we still managed to get the place looking presentable and we signed up three new members today."
Making the public aware of the museum, said Giardino, was the point behind the event.
"The group has been around for a little over two years and we have kind of been behind the scenes," he said. "We haven't really put a face out there to the public yet and this is that opportunity."
