    It was the Edmonton Show I attended. I have been trying to locate some of my old stuff. Most of it did go when the layout was sold years ago. I do know there is at least a couple of locomotives left over, the challenge is finding them.

    Well, Let's See...

    Since I took a hundred or so pictures, I can dig up a few more.

    Here we have a nice pair of Proto 1000 RDCs.

    Looks like someone put a little work into these F units. :)

    GMD-1s...

    Speaking of stripey CN locos, a brass dealer had a lovely selection of pieces on display. Of note to me was a GMD-1 in the B-B truck arrangement, although I'm sure it was a good deal, $1200.00 seemed a little much. ;)

    This Was Cool...

    I dunno why, but I have some weird B-unit fetish. Here's a really neat looking SD 7 or 9 (??) cabless loco.

    Grain Elevators...

    I'm a big fan of the older wooden grain elevators, and there were many beautiful examples on display. These ones were especially nice.

    Looks like someone's failed project has still found good use...

    Is This NEAT...Or What?

    One of the regular exhibitors at this show is the Salmon Arm (B.C.) modell RR club. They have a huge, beautifully scenicked, very well detailed layout. It would literally take a week to upload all their pictures. Here is a mine tram that runs on N scale track.

    Snowshed...

    On their layout were a few very nicely done snowsheds. Here's one.

    Great Steve - thanks a lot for posting. When I was 16 our family took a car trip out west and the grain elevators (as well as those awesome prairie skies) are a very fond memory. Haven't been back that way in over 30 years - I bet a LOT has changed!

    Personally I have a thing for those cylindrical covered hoppers! Too bad there were none in the era I model. But that CN greeen and gold livery is pretty excellent as you say.

    There's just one more thing I need to ask. Got any more?? Don't worry - we won't get tired of them, will we guys?

    cheers
    Val
