Usually father Stan keep s up on all that. He must really be busy.
I talked to a couple of folks on the phone but did not report anything super outstanding that stood out.

I really enjoyed the show- stayed Friday until the last minute. Came away with arm fulls of stuff, switches for layout expansion in planning, BM 0-4-0, Co Models building, tunnel portals and lots of misc stuff. Oh and my wife hung in there for the whole day and carried out 3 trays of plants! Nice selection of miniature plants which we just can't see locally.
Here are some photographs if you don't mind cut and paste the link. They are all of items I found of interest, no people or gatherings.
Must apologize for not getting names of layouts, and builders of the items, but they were photos for my reference.

However, I feel for those Western guys who didn't make it, so hope you enjoy some random shots

My wife and I also made several trips out to her truck. We did find some real bargains and steals. Quite alot of goodies to be had, but if you looked around, you could find some hidden treasures

I'll do you one better than pictures JJ. Here are some videos of the live steam Loops. The O scale Alcohol fired at the beginning was Murray's and the ruby pulling the flat car is mine. I also had the pleasure of meeting Brittany but I didn't get any shoots of her locos. Maybe this should be in the Live steam thread but I wanted to help out since you hadn't got any pictures yet.


Pardon me Jerry, I didn't see your post with the link. Didn't mean to down play it. Those plant's were nice too. Have fun with them !

Hey Randy, no problem re: pictures. In fact, on the drive up to York, my wife said: Did you bring the video camera? Well no, I thought you were bringing the video camera........so I did not have my cam to video the layouts especially the steamers.
Thus your video was appreciated. Welcome more if you have them

Funny you mention that Marty, MY wife had to stop and giggle every time we saw some eggliners. Needless to say we have several pictures of them.

Great pics of the new AC 2-8-0 runing back and forth. JJ if anyone has a perfect place to build an Army proving ground you got everyone else beat.

Paul, thanks again for the bushings. Installed them this morning. Found a couple of the ones I took out were worn through.

Show was great! Bought bunch of stuff and met lots of people. My best find was a unlettered, white and red trim 3 truck shay for 325.
