    Thanks for posting the pics Chris. Gosh, it's super to see a variety of models like these. A bit of everything in there. I too liked the switching layout you particularly liked, I guess I'll hang onto my HO stuff (never know how I might feel in the future about having another bash in that gauge :) )
    But most of all to see y'all happy and smiling is a treat in itself.
    Again my friend , Thanks a million.

    Chuckling here (again) ... hehehe, I bet you're broke now till next payday!!!!!! :( :) :D :D :D

    Great stuff!

    Thank-you so much Chris, my friend. It sure was great to hook up with everyone and so nice to have a record of a fun-filled day.
    Next time around, at the NMRA show, don't forget you're all invited to my place for coffee and snacks!!!!!!!

    cheers
    :D Val

    PS: yep Errol - dropped a small bundle on passenger cars, signs and a beauty of a BA truck.

    You covered the show so well Chris that anything I have are duplicates of your photos so just want to say how much we apreciate you being the official photographer for the day.
    TrainShows are interesting to visit but sharing time with great folks like you all was very special.

    WOW

    Thanks Cris, made it feel as if I were there. Loved all the pics and nice to see you all had a great time. The picture with the little boy with his eyes closed seems to be saying, "oh let it be mine". :rolleyes: Later, Jim:D

    Chris, what a great photo series of the show. I went to the Great American Train Show in Portland this winter but it wasn't anything like that!

    Val, I hope the NMRA is in the summer since I'll be riding my Gold Wing all the way from Oregon for that coffee and those snacks!! LOL

    Cheers, Jim

    Well Chris, the time of year is perfect. Won't be this summer, but if that show is an annual event, next summer may be a whole different story!! I rode to Prince Albert, Sask. two summers ago for a rally so was halfway there then. LOL

    Cheers, Jim

    Thanks Chris for the beautiful pictures and tour. I really enjoyed it. I met Robin several years ago outside of Vancouver when he was visiting his new grandaughter. We had a real nice chat.
