Yeah its been a while for me on here. I spent most of the year finishing the Santa Fe Mikado bash and the F45 is still the grey ghost. Have not touched it all year. I run it on the house layout along with the U50 but she is still unfinished. The mikado is done and needing decals. I will talk to Stan at the show.
I can bring the units if there is a booth again this year and room for them. I would not want to take space away from new projects. I have not seen much about the show online here. Just so glad this year to have a room and be able to stay around and visit with friends.

Hello to all,

I was thinking about going to this show. Is it really good? I won’t be able to see any of the display layouts at people’s houses but is there any in the convention center building? I live in San Jose and I will drive down only for Saturday. Any input would be appreciated

What do you guys think?

Thanks,

Charles

Charles - for whatever it's worth, once you've been around MLS a little while, the BTS becomes THE event of the year, primarily because it's the annual gathering of west coast MLSers. I've been going now since 2001, and it's the high point of my social year, not so much because of the show itself, but because it's the one time of the year I get to actually hang out with all the friends I've made here, run trains with them, have drinks with them, and socialize!

I live in Milpitas btw, and will mostly be found at the live steam track. If you do decide to go, make sure you stop by and stick out your hand! :)

Charles,
By all means, come down to the show. I can just about guarantee that next year you'll make plans to be there both days of the show. Maybe even like several of the guys who have started showing up on thursday! As mentioned before, there will be some excellent layouts on display in the show hall and most if not all of them have at least one MLS member. Be sure and stop by the MLS booth and say hi to whoever is at the booth at the time.

I ask everyone to remember to come by the MLS booth and sign the member board EACH day! We do this so all members have the chance to see who else is in attendance from MLS. As we are all spread out around the show sometimes we don't know someone is at the show that we want to meet until after their gone.

Y made our reservations today for Friday and Saturday at the Marriott. We'll be coming into town Thursday night but won't be at the show until Friday AM.

Steve

JJ,
Would you mind hauling some (4 total) badges to the show??
I had some made up for folks that ultimately couldn't make it to the convention, and I'd hate to waste the badges...
Maybe we could meet up at my office???

This is gonna be a dandy show for me this year. Brian's asked me to do a bunch of images for him so I think MLS will be featured in a great way... :D:D: We'll be there to set up the Live Steam track and I'll be workin' for trains in the St Aubin booth.

Then there's the little one in the MLS booth. Steve n' Y, does he have his own TX for trains yet? :)

Richard, it will be great meeting you and we'll sure get a whole bunch of images of all the MLS manned modules. Dore Holler, Da Gold one, Liiiive Steem and the Zun Dancentral..... The ABTO guys from Phoenix will be setting up as well. It's gonna be a dandy show........

We're featured on the Thursday bus tour. Would you guys like to do a pizza party here Thursday night? We are about 45 minutes to an hour (depends on traffic) from the show. You can even bring trains to run..., assuming they can get around 8 foot diameter curves.
