    Glenn Ernie and I decided to have a boys morning, yes another one:D
    Anyway Lindsay Ontario had a show on so off we went.

    The first end to end was a splendid "S" gauge that is the one between HO and O gauge.

    Thanks for sharing these pictures Chris! Great model rqailroads (I've always been surprised that S scale isn't more popular...even though I model HO I think S is the perfect size), nice prototype photos too. That Uxbridge station has some neat lines to it.

    My schedule doesn't let me get to the Lindsay show -- I did manage to viisit the hobby shop in London while my wife was at a shower.

    Can you imagine a real minority interest -- British trams in S scale.

    You know Ralph I kind a wished I was IN that scale it looked just right to my eye.

    And David I was visualizing Traction in that scale and had to come away from it, as my drooling was starting to show:oops: :D

    No Stuart, But I do think we have found a look-a-like.

    I have never met him, but looked him up after your post.:)

    Hello, Jack. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Tony Koester, but have always enjoyed his monthly MR article "Trains of Thought". I have always felt he had his thumb on the pulse of new and inventive ideas. I was amazed at how much the gentleman in the above photo resembled Tony. Have a great day.
