From the Blackhawk Museum website:
For the 16th year, the European Train Enthusiasts (ETE) will bring their HO Scale European Model Trains and Modular Layout to Blackhawk to brighten the holiday season. This year, the Layout will be located inside the Blackhawk Plaza Shopping Center adjacent to Draeger’s Market.
ETE’s Module Group has created remarkably detailed scale versions of European landscapes, including mountains, villages, bridges, farms, lakes and industries, which come alive when they operate their trains though the carefully constructed countryside.
Each day during the run of the exhibition you will see a wide selection of locomotives, freight and passenger cars from various countries in Europe as different ETE members operate the layout.
