The billboard is great. It forces people to ask "what is TT?". It's a super advertising tool. I guess that's why they exist in real life.

Welp, today was mostly good. Talked to a lot of people, met Mikee B of TT Empire fame, Matt Coleman stopped by, Angry and Catt came by a few times. CaTT was a savior by taking over the layout a several times so I could get up and walk away for a few minutes.

I ran the FP7, SOO and PRR SW1200s, a GP9 and an ICE. Everything went well until about 2 hours before the day was over when all traction started having problems. I suspect it's the Lenz digital commander or its power supply. Luckily I brought my MRC dual throttle so the action sort of continued. The locos with chips in them were acting funny so hopefully the chips aren't toast.

Will be in bright and early tomorrow morning to clean tracks.....

I know. Somebody needs to get crackin' on building a working Star Trek like transporter or a Battlestar Galactica (Newer version) style FTL "Jump" Drive.

Great stuff conducttor, good to see Matt putting his nose in again as well. Just like used to do to me occasionally when he was in the UK. Thanks for the updates

Serious point from me though, TT at 1:120 or 101:1 are the only real scales that float my boat so huge thanks to all the guys that are supporting and flaunting the scale so well in Atlanta.
