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
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
We had a good time at the show. Talked with stan a few minutes he was getting ready for his lecture. There did not seem to be as many vendors as in years past. Yes there were good deal to be had you just had to look for them. Picked up the newz-stuff for trains semaphore for$69.50 and the 3color signal for$52.50 at g-scale junction booth.
I took a cheap little point and shoot camera. Most of the shots are on the layout side. I put them all into an 8 minute movie on Youtube. I had a terrific day, although could not really spend the whole day there.
