David H Dice said he is giving the Oswego Railroad Museum the circus layout he built over the last few years.

“I want people to in joy it. My grandchildren and there children and family can see it and say, ‘My Grandfather made this.’ I am so happy to be able to do this,” he said.

It took him more than three years (“maybe four”) to do.

“I just did it a little bit at a time; as I found the very old kits on E Bay. Jackie did the big top,” he said.

Now that he has cleared out some space – what’s next?

“I don’t know right now. But, I will find some thing,” he replied.

  1. IF this is the same ‘circus’ I saw at the NY State Fair, wow, what a fabulous gift for the local RR club! As a visitor to both the Fair Exhibit each year, and the local display(s), thank you for your generosity.
