Burlington coal drag headed by IM F3A&B (my first locos) pull a string of Trainworx Quad Hoppers
Great Northern Empire Builder. With 4 Kato cars, 3 new Rapido "Panorama" cars, and a brand new Centralia Car Shops Observation Car
What a fun show. I finally got to run some of my treasured trains. The Trainworx coal drag, the Empire Builder, two new Atlas GP 38s, a Kato NW2 & a pair of Kato SD45s.
I also got more familiar with using the Digitrax DT402D throttle. I learned how to program addresses, MU & dispatch locos. I'm even comfortable running two trains at once.
I was also lucky to have my dad bring my two young sons to the show and let them have fun. They were most happy riding on a real steam train and an old diesel.

I picked up a new Centralia Car Shops GN Empire Builder Observation Car "Kootenai River". And a nicely weathered ExactRail SP Grain Hopper.
It is truly nice to come together with people who enjoy this hobby and run some trains. It was nice to see my 4D N-Trak club & the rail fans Peter and Neil. My friend Bert stopped by. And I made a new friend Tyler.
