The previous post is the last of the picutres. The show was a lot of fun but also alot of work. we had to set up 42 modules, 16 new curved ones and 20 new straight ones. The modules in the center were put on sawhorses. Toward the end of the set-up session on Friday, we ran out of splitjaw clamps. It was a little nerve racking. But once evrything was hooked up, and we were good to go, it went fine. Had some problems with the last coal car derailing in the fist part of the "S" curve, but Ray Manley and Bob Williams worked dilligently on it and got it fixed. Sunday, for a while, we had a Hudson pulling the coal cars by itself, I wanted to have my Annie try it but we ran out of time, and we were all tired, and I was a bit cranky.
   I left my camera at home on Sunday, so I don't have any pics from that day.
   All in all, it was worth it to be there. the show only comes thru town once every 4 years, so, hopefully when it comes thru next time, things will go smoother. everyone in our club seemed to be pleased with the way things went and especialy the crowds that gatered to watch then trains, considrering that the BIG 12 basketball tournement was intown at the same time and parking was at a premium, along with parking prices, there was great turn out. Untill next, hope everyone has good spring.

Cliff,

Can you email me a full size copy of the group photo of us you posted?  

Also, did you guys buy the blue carpet to make the river or paint/dye some white carpet.  You might have just solved my water problem on my layout. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif

Thanks on both counts!

Ed, the Blue carpet was purchased by one of our club members, I am not sure where, but I can find out for you. Yes, I can email you the full size picture I have, as a matter of fact I think I have 2 of them.
