there will be two loops set up on the floor of the stage. the lengths will be determined by the size of the stage. we will also have scenery. the show is an all scale show.

Jason,
I am trying to find out if live steam is allowed by the show promoter, he is checking with the fire marshall and will get back to me as soon as he hears something, what are you planning on running and what size curves would you need,we also have a 3rd track going down, but these are all a floor displays.
email me off line and we can talk..

Just to let everyone know, i can proudly say we were the hit of the show. We ended up with three loops going with trains belching smoke and making plenty of noise. Even the smaller scale guys were in awe. There was a vendor selling some LGB and Bachmann starter sets. He said they went fast because people would go up on the stage, see our display and get over to him. Lots of kids of all ages gawked as the trains circled the tracks. We even picked up a new club member that day. All in all, a great day of railroading.
