Hi All
Who’s coming to the National Summer Steam-up in Sacramento? This is a great venue and the Lions Gate Hotel has to be one of the greatest deals as far as hotels go. There is the great California State Railroad Museum close by that is a must if you haven’t seen it already.
This is a running steam-up, that is to say there are about 10 tracks including “O” gauge so there is lots of track time for everyone. The weather is always great, blistering hot but a dry heat, sort of like your oven in the kitchen. :cool: The BBQ on Saturday night is always fun.

Dan,

I plan on being there, flying in to San Fran Tuesday and seeing the sights with Jeff and Alan Redeker.

Now, who has a set of Daylight cars that I can loan out from them for a run (or three)...the GS-4 GW needs something to pull.

Hi,
I'll be there for at least one day (most likely Saturday, possibly Friday as well). I plan to bring my dual gauge track (gauge 1 plus 4.75") so we can run behind our gauge 1 locos like last year...
Now what I really want to know is how many Rubys (Rubies?) does it take to pull a full size person?

I plan on bringing my Daylight cars, that is if David has finished them. Of course you will be able to use them.

Ann Stephens and I will be there Friday and Saturday. We will each bring two locos plus cars. We are very much looking forward to the annual gathering. This is a really great venue run by a really hardworking and dedicated group!!!!

I'll be there on Saturday representing the steam logging mafia. We will probably bring our new logging diorama.

I am really looking forward to it. I am even going to take a couple of locos so that Mr.O'connor can't give me a bad time.

Gosh Don, if I knew that's all it took, I would have given you a bad time.

I'll be there with my new, unrun Accucraft 'Lyn'. I'll may need some cars for it to pull once I get it going. :) I may also bring an Astor Lion.

I'm looking forward to the show and seeing everyone.
