Steel Museum Model Train Exhibit Gets an Update

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio– The Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor’s model train exhibit has received an upgrade from Stephanie Godsey, former intern at the museum.

Godsey completed the project working toward a certificate in museum and archive studies at the University of Akron. The train display is a generic 1950s steel town thought to be modeled after Youngstown.

“The Western Reserve Modular Railroad Club was the club that put this together in 2010, so we decided to update the sign for them,” says Godsey. “I then had to create an interpretative framework around the trains and how they operated in the steel mills.”
