I'll be there with my Hawaiian Fowler and either C-21 or K-28 on Saturday. Look forward to seeing everyone. This is probably my first post as I have a Mac and for some reason I can never get it to allow replies/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/cry.gif. Using a different computer this time.

We decided to load the van yesterday based on the fine weather.  Speaking of weather- forecast good thus far for the upcoming weekend.  The 26 x 58 foot layout fit well but the real challenge is always the re-loading after the meet, kinda like a suit case on a trip.


Excitement builds as we look forward to all those attending and their various locomotive power.

Have a safe trip.

Actually, we have created a bit more room.  We took off the straps from the boards allowing for the 6 section yard to be placed into the track area.  Secondly, we have gone to the yellow folding legs, much more compacted but much heavier.

Extra room-
Of course, in the center of the van is a void yet to be filled with tools, and train items!  Without a doubt the van will have no extra space given that we are transporting not only our "goods" but that of a few customers to and from having done work on retrofits.

I am hoping to have room for a boat to run at the pond on Sunday.

One advantage (disadvantage in costs) is that Ryan will be driving his car with the locomotives.  Particularly necessary given that we will have 2 CF locomotives to bring along with the KFC, RFC, GS4-GW,  and well....space will tell the actual line up.

Trying to get all ready so that I can sleep easy that evening before and get that "refreshing" early morning start (NOT- never a morning person).
