More train show news

I don’t know why the train gods are smilling on us but we just got word that our location at the show has been seriously modified.  Originally we were lucky to get in at all with the waiting list.  Initially we were to be in the 4th and newest building.  We just got notice that we have been moved to the main building and we are located with Dave Frary to one side and Scotty Mason on the other.  Could you want a better location.  I think not.  Though I did have to take a critical look at some of the prototype kits I’ve used on our layout.  The prototypes are test builds and as such can have a rough corner or three.  Maybe I’m overreacting but the potential increased scrutiny has motivated me to revisit (scrap) a couple of those structures and replace them with new builds of the final release versions of two kits.

Brother Dave is also in a mad rush to find replacement motor brushes for our paper box cab which died unexpectadly during a layout burn in session.  Another new addition to our roster of motive power, an 0-4-0 with paper cab, side tanks and snow plow is also undergoing some tune ups.

Good thing I like building models.

Hi Thom,Show went down well it was held in a Basketball court in a sports center over two days ,3 of us took turns running the Trams ,there where about 25 layouts and roughly the same amount of traders,over the two days there where 1800 people thru the doors,and the Steeplecab drew a lot of interest,people where amazed that it was card,some thought it was a resin kit,and yes i plugged your name too so i hope that you get some feedback from it.

many thanks Marc.
