For the first time, the club setup the HO scale layout for National Train Day at the New London Train Station. The show was open to the public from 9 am to 2 pm and featured the club's layout, a Chuggington kids play area, as well as a display by the Amtrak Police Department.

The club displayed the Pequot Yard, Inglenook, Billstown, Brookside Farm, Gas Station Corner, Rockville Corner, and Young Building Corner. While the event wasn't well publicized, the club enjoyed the day and even showcased a few Amtrak trains zipping around the layout.
