    Hi guys, We took the Traction to a Local show this year as we had a problem getting to Ottawa:( .
    We last "did " bowmanville three years ago, and it was nice to see some old faces again.
    So here are a few pics of our weekend.
    Here we see the lads setting up the layout.

    Thanks for posting pictures - cute grandson! How large was this show? I've only been to three train shows in my life and they have all been in the Dallas, TX area. How many scales were represented?
