On October 21 and 22, 2017, TexLUG-Houston joined host Texas Brick Railroad to provide displays at Houston Maker Faire. Centered in the space was a large train and town layout with 5(!) tracks crossing bridges. An assortment of trains ran throughout the show, including a Princess Train and a Galveston Island Trolley.
One TexLUG-Houston member set up a large classic space display with three monorail loops, custom space ships, aliens, and more. In addition, there were Star Wars models, a pirate/medieval collaboration, and a highly detailed scene with an Asian temple, jungle, and waterfall. Four tables of play brick allowed kids and adults to use their own creativity.
Participation included 16 AFOLs and 3 TFOLs (combined totals for both LUGs). Public attendance was approximately 7,000 total for two days. TexLUG-Houston would like to thank Innovation Spark for once again inviting us to be a part of Maker Faire.
