This is already kind of old news, but there is a train exhibit at the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum running November 14 2011 to January 27 2012. Part of it includes an exhibit by the Southern California LEGO Train Club.
"In the Great Room the Southern California LEGO® Train Club returns for a third visit for the winter holidays with a 36’ x 24’ layout showing the Tustin hangars, an airport, long bridges, skyscrapers and other city buildings, town and country sections, and a deep canyon with trestle bridge. Hundreds of thousands of bricks and countless hours by 23 members create an amazing display, with trains running through it all. A “find-it-list” is provided to entice visitors to find interesting scenes and items around the layout."
I'm planning to check it out soon. Has anyone gone? There are some photos on the SCLTC website: http://www.scltc.org/pages/galleries/events.asp

    Awesome. Due to a variety of factors I have not been able to make it yet, although I am hoping to check it out by this weekend.

    I went to the exhibit yesterday, and was very impressed by the LEGO train layout. Saw lots of familiar sets and pieces, and some not so familiar. I recall seeing this a few years back, before I was following the AFOL community. It looks like they reuse the entire set-up every year, so somethings do look like likey could use a scrubbing (not exactly dusty, but there were a lot of windows that could have used a washing - LOL).

    Put together a short video on You Tube (not very good I might add)...
