Club’s event unites train enthusiasts

| March 31, 2014

COSHOCTON – Mike and Stephen Shontz enjoyed some father son time at the Coshocton Model Railroad Club’s slide show and open house. “I’ve always been fascinated with trains and thought it was neat to operate my own little train,” Mike said. He has more than 1,000 freight cars and about 240 engines and Stephen has his own layout in his room. “He’s a chip of the old block,” Mike said. The club held its annual event on March 29, to give the public an opportunity to share slide shows of trains and view its model layout. The club’s building is located on the fairgrounds and meetings are held there at 8 p.m. every Friday night.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
