PHOTOS FROM MOST RECENT SHOW'S AND EVENTS
Intermountain Train Expo at South Towne Expo Center. November 11th, and 12th 2017
Friday Morning 11:30 A.M.
They were late getting the room set up so we couldn't start unloading till 2:00 P.M. We didn't finish till after 7:30
View from southeast corner.
This is where we located the access point to the layout. Karin set up a table for demo's
The layout from the north side.
This was the longest section including Robert's and Jason's modules. 34 feet with Cameron's and Dave's corner.
A birds ey view.
The photo is a bit fuzzy, but gives a wider view. I'm still learning how to steady the camera on the end of the selfie stick.
A good view of the yard
Jason sets up a consist while Jacob, Nate, Cameron, and Bob look on.
Aropund the end loop
Cameron set up a network WiFi system that connects the DCC system to any cell phones to use them as a throttle with a free app called Engine Driver
The main show floor
Here you can see a good part of the layout and show. Cameron, Bob, and Brian are currently running.The vendor booths were off to the left
Crazy Bob returns
Last year, Bob Cooney moved to Seatle. Unfortunatlely it didn't work out so now he's back, and back in the club
The Big Blow
Steve pulled out his new UP turbine with sound and tried it out on the layout. It was loud just like the real thing!
Grinding up Weber canyon
This would have been a familiar site back in the day. Jason's canyon module is a perfect setting for this
A Tiny Camera
This little camera is only one inch square and fits nicely on a flat car. It has 720P resolution, sound, a built in SD card slot, and a USB rechargeble battery
A big hit
Russ's mine module and moving front loader were the hit of the show. I answered more questions about them than anything else
Looking toward the back
Again a bit fuzzy, but you can see more of the show floor
Building more trees
Karin had quite a few people ask about her tree making technique.
A variety of scales
This display shows all the different scales from tiny Z scale up to G scale. From bottom to top: Z, N, TT, HOn3, HO, S, On3, O (3 rail), O (2 rail), G
