I fixed your photos.


 


It was great to finally meet you Noel.  We've been trying to hook up for a couple of years now.  The guy from Tracy is Jon - a.k.a. farmerted on the forums.  He and I met a couple of years back when I bought a couple of AMS boxcars off of him.


I had a great day.  It's always fun to hang out with Mikey.  But since he forgot his badge, his punishment is to be banned from chat for two weeks. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

I did forget my badge. But my name was on my hat. So, when I forgot who I was, I just had to look at the hat...versus the badge. No problem.

It was great to see you all at the show, and no worries Noel...  Though a regular visitor here I'm not a frequent poster, so I didn't really expect folks to recognize me.  It was a real treat to see Dwight's NPC #21 up close...  unfortunately I arrived too late to see it under steam.


A lot of great stuff to see!  Had been hoping to see a K-27 on display, but still too new I guess.  Jonathan had a great selection of AMS/Accucraft cars on display and the Car Works ditcher you see next to Mike - very impressive.  Those new AMS log cars are even better looking in person than on the mfr website, and are very tempting!

I got a call tonight from a friend of mine up in Groveland... turns out I and my loco were on TV on the KXTV 11 O'Clock News out of Sacramento. :D Unfortunately, I couldn't find a video clip of it on KXTV's web site.

I saw the camraman there filming the live steamers. In fact, he derailed Matt's caboose with his camera lens. On the next pass, he broke the cab roof mounts on Matt's K-28. Betcha they didn't use those clips. ;) The real drag of it was the cameraman didn't even say anything when he ran his lens into the same train twice. Jerk.

Noel,
Thanks for posting the pics from the show. Really hate that we missed it but I was nursing a cold that has now grown up! Glad you posted some around the show pics too! Saw some of my MLS friends as well as friends from when we used to travel the show circuit. BTW, the 2 layouts you posted as Z scale are actually N scale(tiny no matter what the letter is!).

The caboose is fine still have to figure out what I am going to do about the roof on my k-28
The camraman did not even mention anything all he said was that my caboose was of the track. Once he hit my k-28 he packed up his camra and went to the sparkys did not say a word to me. I am with you dwight he was a jerk
Let me now if you find the clip. That might prove the point that they are to close to the action.
