On July 4th, the great heritage and independence of the United States of America is celebrated across the country and even the world. Railroaders recognize the significance of the train in America's grand history, and here at DASH we wanted to honor the train's importance in both maintaining our independence and as a symbol for the prosperity of this great land.
That's why I decided to create the following representation of the American flag using the model trains that we all know and love. By utilizing the wonders of technology, I was able to piece together more than 100 different trains to create a mosaic image that captures the patriotic side of our hobby.
It might just look like a blob of trains to the untrained eye, but it's actually a complete flag with the correct number of red-and-white stripes, as well as 50 unique white spots over a field of blue trains to represent the 50 stars. We think this is the ultimate model train flag and DASH is honored to share it with the world.
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July holiday, and I hope you'll take a moment to pass along the patriotism by sharing our flag with your friends, family, and fellow railroaders.
