January 2006
- JSME constructed an 8x12 foot Lionel/Department 56 Christmas layout for the lobby and an "Old Tyme" G scale layout for the Museum interior.  Both were enjoyed by hundreds upon hundreds of visitors.  The Museum reported an increase in holiday traffic over prior years, which is the hopeful outcome of our efforts.  For the new year, JSME is installing the base of the new 80 foot long N scale layout depicting the Jackson railroad infrastructure.
