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!

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!

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)

Jeff,
See http://ggrs.info/ and go to the past meetings and shows link and look at the 2007SELSTS where you will find several photos of the live steam track (there is one photo under the 2008 SELSTS link). Everyone out there needs to take a look at the 2008 and 2007 links for some good ideas of what you might see at the show. EVERYONE needs to make plans to come on down (or over or up or however you get to Dalton from your place) to the Southeast Garden Railroad Show held on May 1 & 2, 2009. It will be an EXCITING PLACE FOR ALL GARDEN RAILROADERS!

RJ & Jeff,
I just posted what Joe sent me. I must confess I do not know for sure. My thinking is that if an Aristo Mikado at 1:29 scale will run on it, then the Aster at 1:32 scale should run fine (and I certainly could be wrong on the scales).

RJ,
I just copied and pasted. I could be right -I could be wrong. I still think if the Aristo Mikado will make it, the Aster will.
I thought I was wrong once, but I was just mistaken!

RJ,
I'm sticking to my original post, outside track has 5 foot radius curves and the inside track has 4.5 foot radius curves. I think that is exactly what you said above, as a 5 ft. radius is a 10 ft. diameter.

RJ,
I guess it does not matter. From Jeff's post above, his loco requires 8 ft. radius/16 ft. diameter and Joe's track is abit smaller. However, there will be live steam there, so Jeff, come on to Dalton!

Friends,
The Southeast Garden Railroad Show set for May 1-2 in Dalton is progressing nicely. The show was originally in Perry (for the last 3 years) and hosted by Aristo-Craft Trains. A new promoter has taken up the show (he does the Heart of America Large Scale Show for the last 2 years). It is stricktly large scale. There are currently two Florida clubs, a live steam track, our Georgia Garden Railway Society's layout and hopefully a Tennessee group or two bringing operating layouts. Several BIG dealers are coming along with several smaller mom and pop specialty type dealers. The GA bunch will host a banquet with guest speaker and door prizes on Friday night AND a self-guided layout tour on Sunday. Yes, it is a BIG show, so please plan to be there. I will be there for sure!
Tenneessee Valley Railroad will host Thomas that same weekend (advanced reservations required). Bring the kids or grandkids!

Friends,
Only 4 months from today will be the 2009 Southeast Garden Railway Show in Dalton, Georgia. 4 months! There will be a banquet (with door-prizes), clinics, display layouts from several clubs, dealers and manufacturer displays. On Sunday, the Georgia Garden Railway Society will have a self guided layout tour (including one featured in Garden Railway's magazine). Thomas the Tank engine will be at the Tennessee Valley Railroad the same weekend, so bring the kids or grandkids and make a great vacation! Go to http://www.segrs.com/ for more info. The site will be updated regularly, so check back often for latest updates and banquet and tour info!
