    We had a highlight Saturday afternoon, after placing my box car on the L/O Dave gunned her up she derailed in the city and hit the building knocking out a sign :D :D :D . We all jumped up with cameras a going and gave Dave a ticket for fast operation.

    The visiters thought it was a staged accident, they never are :rolleyes:

    We had the police and ambulance ther lickity split :D

    Chris: I forgot all about the show.
    You need to etch some tread marks into the road and sidewalk where the derailment was. I think there's still a set at Lansdowne and Dundas where a car tried to enter the Pub -- two marks in the kerb.

    Chris, thanks so much for sharing these wonderful shots. There are a lot of great ideas to be had in them.
    I was wondering do you know the gentleman that is building the viaducts? I would love to talk to him if you do. I would gladly give you my email to pass on to him. Thanks so much, Pat.

    Thanks for posting the pics Chris!! Sorry I couldn't make it out this weekend, but I'm hoping to see you at the next show.

    Do I see some more buildings in the traction town? Looks a little more populous since I last saw it.

    Love the buildings on that English layout... Is that a school? reminds me of my primary school... remember to have gates marked "Boys" and "Girls" one at each end of the playground along the wall...
