I talked with Lewis Polk today regarding the SELSTS. I told him I was interested in keeping it going. He gave me his blessings to continue the show.

Therefore, I plan to do the show on the same dates and times.

We are working on getting a show car

I'm looking forward to the show and expect it to be a success.

I can use all the help I can get to get people coming to the show.

I guess the south will rise again.

Dave, since you have our attention, why don't you go ahead and post the date and place here.

I originally thought about having it the same time and place as announced. However, My helpers down in that area are saying that there might be better locations in Ga that would make the show more complete, accessable, and fun.

I will let everyone know when I know. That should be soon. I'm thinking May 1 & 2 will probably be the time.

RJ,
David has permission from Aristo, so I am thinking it will still be SELSTS. As all gets worked out, more will be posted. David has been in touch by e-mail with our clubs board of directors. The live steam track is committed to attend as is our club layout (in theory).

RJ,
See the sponsor of this forum topic. The HEART OF AMERICA SHOW is Davids. I think we will be like Allstate, and be in good hands!

Dave is the one who heads up the HAGRS shoiw in KC, I've been there couple of times. we had hoped Lewis would jump on board with a booth.

I just don't know about the dates and I know Dave has his hands full with the KC show on his home ground.

I would also suggest changing the name so it won't be condused on who is head of it.

Guys,
You will be impressed! David has been hard at work to make the Southeast Garden Railway Show a huge success. Watch this forum as well as Garden Railway's magazine for full details of the May 1-2 show at the NorthWest Georgia Trade and Convention Center in Dalton, Georgia. The Georgia Garden Railway Society will host the banquet again.

Jeff,
One of our other club members will have to answer that question, as I do not know the size. It is the same track that has been at the last two or maybe three SELSTS's in Perry. It was orginally made in Dalton (no, it is not made of carpet) so the live steam track will really just be having a homecoming!

Looks like it will be about the same distance from home:

Walking to Dalton, GA
215 mi â€" about 3 days 0 hours

Driving in truck
255 mi â€" about 4 hour-extra miles to stay on Hwy

Jeff,
I got the LIVE STEAM info for you:
The bench work is 16 feet by 26 feet.
Outside track has 5 foot radius curves and the inside track has 4.5 foot radius curves.

You can see photos at the Georgia Garden Railway Society site (under past shows and meeting link)

Bob,
ECONOMICS! Perry was MUCH more cost effective that Atlanta. Dalton is less than Chattanooga (about the same as Perry).
