    It's getting close! For anyone that wants to meet there, we are going to try and meet somewhere just inside the front doors on Saturday at around 10:00am. Hope to see you there!

    I just got back from the Calgary Supertarin show, there were lots of layouts, and lots of people. It's a good thing we got there early, last year they had almost 20000 people go through in 2 days!

    Hi Mike,

    Went this morning as well.

    Now have two more C Liner A+B consists and GP35 (all Tuscan of course!) Did you buy anything?

    We got there at 9.00am. I agree, it filled up pretty fast after that. I still enjoy the Edmonton Clubs layout (some awesome electonics in signalling, grade crossings and extras) but thought of you when looking at the kicking horse pass layout at the entrance!

    I didn't buy anything, I thought about the undec SD90's for $99 each, but I have to save up for the AC4400's instead!

    Maybe we bumped into each other!

    Mike.

    I got good deals on the C Liners $100 per consist and about $80 for the Geep.

    Makes me wonder what the markup is when they normall sell for about $159

    I took some pictures, but they all turned out too dark, I'll try to lighten some of them up and post them...

    Mike,

    Did the spiral tunnel exhibit ever get a consist moving while you were there (if it did, I certainly missed it!)

    Owen, I never did see a train moving on the Spiral Tunnels, I had to wait till I came home for that! By the way, when are you coming over?!

    Here are another 4 pictures,
