The hall is big. We are in the SW corner of hall E.

We did not get everything I asked for.
I only got six tables, not the seven I wanted. Good thing I brought two of my own. The tables are only 24" deep, not the 30" we usually set up on.

I dressed the tables and set up the display. Had to adjust the rails on the two half depth modules.
Then clean the track and run. Only had to fix one joint.

It runs and before anybody else was up.
Changed my headlight bulb packed up all my equipment and loose stuff and headed back to the motel.

Speaking of not getting what I asked for there are not many name tags.
I have them for Terry and Graeham, Bjorne and Anna and Richard.
We can buy more for a nominal fee.

You can pick up you name tags in room 101. See diagram.

The red circled room at the front of the building across the pay parking lot from the MAX train stop is room 101.
In the same building, at the back, the red rectangle is us.
Not sure when I will be in the hall tomorrow. Unless someone is arriving early I will aim for noon.

Grow this by adding a Connection module.


Never thought about it this way but it makes a lot of sense :thumbup:

I expect to be in the hall to 4pm or so.
I have an evening function so have to leave and head back to town around then.

The hall is open for setup to 8pm if you want to stop by and get your name tags.
With your name tags you can wander around freely.
With the exception of equipment the display will be setup and ready to run.

Friday I hope to be there by 8:30.

... on our way to Portland! The Amtrak Cascades Train 513 is delayed 60 to 90 min :thumbdown: but the train staff is very funny and keeps everybody smiling :lol:
I don't know if I will make it to the hall today. But will be there tomorrow around 8am.
Here is a picture of the GuiTTar Case. I'm playing with trains on board a real train :thumbup:

Doesn't that cause ripples in the space time time continuum?

I have some questions concerning organizational and/or financial issue of the show.
Are you to pay some fee for your participation in the show with your layout?
Or, on the contrary, you get some honorarium for your layout?
Or is it free?..
