Ophir Tintic & Western at Thanksgiving Point. January 12th, and 13th 2018
Friday Morning 10:00 A.M.
This year we were on the main show floor right in the middle instead of behind the stage.
All hands on deck.
Getting set up is a lot of work so everyone pitched in to help. Brian doesn't have a module, but he helped everyone else with theirs.
Setting up the yard.
Nate and Robert worked on setting up the yard. The American Flyer guys were next to us (behind Robert).
Getting the sign set up.
When the modules were all up on their feet, Brian and Nate worked on getting the sign set up.
Getting closer
The next thing to do is the wiring. Russ unfortunately forgot the legs to his modules and had to make a trip back home.
Up and running
We had everything ready by 2:30 P.M. Bob made a quick run around the track to test it while everyone began setting up consists.
The whole layout
Although the layout was a bit small, it was nice to be on the main floor. We had lots of traffic.
Lots of passenger consists
Three Hiawatha's, One Daylight, the Broadway Limited, some Great Northern, and the California Zephyr out on the line.
Troublesome trucks
The yard has been the best thing for us. However, bringing cars in and out can sometimes be tricky as Nate is finding out.
Trying out a new steam engine
Bob set David up on his module so he could try his hand at a little switching. The engine is a Bachmann Baldwin 4-6-0 (w/DCC)
Switching to DC power
Saturday afternoon it was decided to switch over to DC power for a couple of hours. Brian pulled out his Santa Fe GP-60M A-B-A set.
Always a big hit
People are always amazed at Russ's mine module and the moving front loader in the quarry.
Redefining small
People think that N-scale is small, but when I tell them that there's 3 scales smaller, they stare at me in disbelief. Here's the proof!
So hard not to touch
Even with the ropes around the layout, it's hard to not want a 'hands on' experience. I don't blame them. It's so COOL!
Main show floor
Here's a view of the layout from up on the stage. As you can see, we're right in the middle of things.
