    A few Traction pics and NMRA shots

    I took a few pictures on the weekend, so I will throw a few on here:D
    We were very pleased with all the questions re Traction and the "how to do this or that" .
    A few visiters were inspired to start there own traction layouts , one couple who were in B C most of there lives and are know in T O, were incouraged to start a Chilliwak (spell?) interurban line with trolly poles. They miss B C and want to start this project to help them relieve homesickness.
    A great hobby ,, is this:D
    The first pic is of the Traction in Action model we operate.

    Grand River Railway club had there fantastic layout there ,,,, but no overhead, and that`s a shame, because they have built great interurbans and box cars.
