    I thought I had a thread started on this.

    Anyway here we go.

    Friday 27 Nov Ernies birthday, He pick me up and met the guys at Brians house for a natter and updat pictures of progress.

    Hats of to Brian , as with my knee op and Glenns health concerns we have not met for a while.
    Never the less Brian kept on working on his own , and put us on track for the Christmas show.

    A few pictures of our night.
    The first is a truck that Brian built.
    and the yard cemented in
    then the overflow.

    She waits for us every train night and gives us all a lick and a waggy tail.
    But our Ernie always brings her a treat.

    We have 20 days to the show, so we are moving up to overdrive next week.

    the next pitures of the Traction in Action L/O will be from the show when all the renovations should be fiished.

    Hope to see you there Val.
    Do you want to give us 1/2 a day or so to help out?? I know you are busy.
    Let me know and I`ll book you a name tag.

    Chris,

    Great work - nice to see it is kept up - and improved! ;) Last time I saw it in person was Railfair in Ottawa two or three years back. Looks fantastic!

    Thanks Andrew.

    It was a few years ago when we were last there. Did the use Algonquin Collage again
    This year?

    It was a tight fit and very hot in there.
    Cheers.

    Chris,

    Yes, it was Algonquin College again. They have done something with the ventialtion, so it was not as hot, but it is still crowded. I think that that's one of the biggest criticisms of RailFair - they need a new venue. More room for layouts, aisles, and more features too. I'd like to see them add some "breakout" rooms where clinics could be run throughout the day. I'd pay extra for that.

    Andrew
