PHOTOS FROM MOST RECENT SHOW'S AND EVENTS
"This is the Place" train day event. Wednesday May 10, 2017
In the Reed Smoot Building.
We had the whole first floor to ourselves. This is the first year they've had this event.
The whole layout.
This is the same setup that Bob and Karen used at the Hurricane show in 2013. It's their two modules and two special end loops.
The old setup track.
The two end loops connect to a setup track hidden behind the layout. Trains dissapear on one side and reappear on the other. Only the red line is used.
End loop 1.
This end loop has a railroad museum scene on it.
End loop 2.
There's a rural scene on this end.
Bobs modules and special
There was plenty of room for the layout. Maybe next year we'll try something larger.
Lots of people.
People are always amazed at how much detail you can get in N-Scale.
It's so hard not to touch
With no stancheons and rope, we had to constantly be on guard.
Gale Center Museum 44 tonner
Normally these are run with DC power on the museum layout. Here I try it out wih DCC. It ran great, but kept getting stuck on the switch frog (unpowered).
Uh Oh - Derailment
Sometimes long consists can be problematic. This time however it was a pair of small hands that caused the derailment.

XTrkCAD is a pretty decent railroad modeling tool. It's not as fancy as some, but it's an absolute free-be!
SCARM or Simple Computer Aided Railway Modeller is
another free railroad modeling tool. It has more than 125 libraries and can display your design in 3D.
