During the past two holiday seasons, the Railroad Model and Historical Association of El Paso has collaborated with Sunflower Bank to create a delightful Christmas train layout in downtown El Paso. The layout boasted three train sets, including an O Scale Polar Express, an O Scale Winter Wonderland, and a G Scale Polar Express. Dedicated members of EPMR (El Paso Model Railroad) spent countless hours constructing the layout and operating the trains during certain weekday hours. The Sunflower Bank generously sponsored the layout, covering the expenses for the trains, most of the buildings, and various accessories.
This is a wonderful tradition for the holiday season and it’s great to see the El Paso community coming together to create something special and enjoyable for all. It’s also fantastic that the Sunflower Bank is sponsoring the layout and supporting the efforts of the Railroad Model and Historical Association of El Paso. It’s always encouraging to see businesses invest in the community in such meaningful ways. In addition to the fun generated from this wonderful layout EPMR was able to share the long history of the railroads in El Paso and the region with adults and children from El Paso and beyond. This year, the group is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to enhance the size and content of the layout for an even more enjoyable experience.
