Roxanna Anspach Devlin is a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty in Nashville, Tennessee. In this capacity, she represents buyers looking for single-family homes, condominiums, and luxury real estate. An active member of her community, Roxanna Devlin was a board member with the Adventure Science Center for two terms.

An independent, not-for-profit institution, the Adventure Science Center has helped individuals experience the unique realm of science since 1945. To this end, the institution maintains a number of award-winning programs and hosts several events throughout the year. Recently, the Adventure Science Center held its 29th Annual Whistlestop Weekend in Nashville. The annual train event was held on November 13-15 and allowed guests to enjoy special train-themed presentations and activities relating to science while also marveling at the area’s best model railroads.

The Whistlestop Weekend aligned with the new All Aboard for Trains exhibit at the Adventure Science Center and featured model railroad layouts provided by Nashville NTRAK and the Music City Chapter of the Train Collectors Association. Guests at the event could participate in any of the three activities held during the weekend, which included demonstrations on how whistles work and the power of steam engines and homopolar motors. Although the Whistlestop Weekend event won’t be held again until next year, the new exhibit is expected to remain at the Adventure Science Center through January 2016.
