    I took a BUNCH of pictures at the Raleigh train show.

    there was a module at nearly every scale: O, S, 2 HO, Ntrak + oNe Trak on a combined module, and even a Lego trains modular layout.

    A few of the more choice images will be posted here. I took over 100, but I'll limit myself to just a few

    N-trak

    The N-trak modular layout was quiter than I expected. Here the tail end of a long freight rounds a curve.. the NTrak is where the freight is going, to the right are oNeTrak modules

    LEGOs!!!

    They may not be the most accurate models, but clearly they're having a load of fun here on the Lego Layout. Check that Double Helix!

    Thanks for taking us with you SS
    That Lego is getting bigger, maybe a stepping stone for our future modlers.;)

    Thanks for the tour SS. That Drive-In theater was made by Miller Engineering, aka Microstructures, and was available in HO and I believe O scale as well.
    I really like that Lego layout as well - it is too cool!

    cheers

    What a great photo! The marquee is excellant! Where did you take it? I wonder if the marquee is avaialble seperately? I'm not crazy about the screen but the sign is great.

    Uh-oh - a little clarification is in order. I didn't take that photo - I got it from the Miller Engineering website back when they were still selling the kit. It's sold out now, so Gary I think you're out of luck.

    cheers
