Lucky fellow. Wish I could see it up close and real.
Thanks guys. Sorry to miss meeting some of you. If all goes according to plan we should be at the NMRA in Portland next year, and maybe at the national N scale in Sacramento, as well.
It was a pleasure running trains through your station at the Roseville show last weekend. Thanks for sending it!
I can't say for sure but we had 4 passenger trains running on the layout at one point! They looked good through the station.
I hope we can get a layout together for the Sacramento N Scale Enthusiasts convention in June. I think it's a Thurs-Sat setup so hopefully that helps!
Stellar results Rick.
We had a great show in Pleasanton this weekend. MC has posted a bunch of photos in his thread (http://www.trainboard.com/grapevine...At-Home-amp-On-The-Road&p=1006334#post1006334)
Here are some photos I took of the station module on Sunday morning, as early morning sun came through the doors onto the station (before the crowds entered)
Here we see the morning light on the Palace Hotel across the tracks from the modern station
and the tops of trees getting the early morning sun
The Torchwood and Daystrom Institute buildings
And a close up of the old town with the morning light
Looking back across the tracks at the station
Don't know what all those kids are doing in the playground so early
A look down the module
In keeping with the SciFi theme of my modern buildings, we had another franchise make an unexpected appearance
Rick , Glad you all had fun and I bet the modules were a big hit.
The photo's of the modules look fantastic. Looks like you're really having fun enhancing the finished modules.
The ghost of Vincent Price?
What was weird was how long it just sat there.
Thanks. Mike and Shades
Rick, awesome work! And The Fly! :startled:
Today was the first day for this weekend's Great Train Show, in Richmond, CA at the Craneway Pavilion. This is the old Ford Motor plant on the Richmond Waterfront, next to the WW2 National Home Front museum (big exhibit on "Rosie the Riveter" etc). A wonderful venue for the train show
Here is my new Kato FEF with excursion train and water bottles
These shots are on a new hillside 45-degree module by Nils
Nice photo's of the FEF Rick. Have fun with it.
Your module looks great Rick.
It was a great day at the show! Rick's two UP passenger trains (FEF and another pulled by a Big Boy) were in demand from the crowd. I was asked "when will it run?!" but multiple visitors.
For any TrainBoarders in the area tomorrow....come on down and check out the show. Like Rick said, it's a GREAT place to watch trains.
If you see a guy with glasses and a 10 month old in a carrier, that will be me. Not 100% sure I'm going, but am gonna try.
Finally get to see that station, Rick, and it looks nice! OK, great would be a better term, but I don't want to gush!! Hope you get to post a video of them two UP steam sets going by that depot.....hint, hint.
