Bill, thank you very much for your reports! I like them very much! :thumbup:

Bill Dixon wrote:Bar Mills stopped by the table to talk TT. No he is not going to do a run of TT Scale models, not enough of a market yet to justify a production run but . . . he might do a special run of a kit or two and donate them to the cause. We will see what happens.


Good news. I checked the http://www.barmillsmodels.com website, and I like these kits!
If he needs some info about production volume and/or some pre-orders - I'll take almost any kit!
Especially something like gas station, small industry building(s), or railroad station (Whistlestop Junction)...
If you aggregate some pool of orders, please, remember about me! :wink:

Congratulations all round. Looks like you've had a really great show and I presume a lot of fun. The photos and updates have been great.

Hi guys and girls,
Well done. All of you, the big track layout, the T-shirts, the flyers, etc let people know that there is TT. This will have a positive spin-off.

Thanks,
Rob

WOW!!! This was an awesome weekend :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
A VERY BIG THANK YOU goes to Bill Dixon :clap: This would have been a very different show for TT without him and his many TT-Tracks modules!!! Thanks for all the organizational work and thanks for taking my bridge modules to Portland and back to Vancouver!!!

It was nice to meet Michael (modorny), ttgauger and Richard (Richard-B). I like what Richard has done with his modules. Richard I really hope you can make it to Vancouver B.C. for the November show. If so, the TT-Tracks display is going to be even bigger. I would say gigantic :o :shock:

Anja, Greame, Terry and Tibi also did their part to make this a succesfull show for TT.
Now it's all about servicing all the rolling stock and layout parts. Only two month left :crazy:

Here are some pics from my GoPro. (Videos will take me a few days)

I remember our first exhibit five years ago when we had one table and a few models sitting on it. It's hard to believe the difference between then and now.

I saw how much had to be put back into Bill's van, which indicated how much time, effort, and money he put into making this weekend happen for TT scale. He deserves thanks from everyone.

And ultimately we owe a big thanks to Alex, the Boss, for starting it all.

Finally got to see Bill's layout in person and operating, a fantastic setup and a lot of fun, and have to say
it was especially nice to see all the joy it was creating for the kids, who could enjoy watching the trains
so close to eye level for them, without ropes or Plexi glass shields diminishing the fun.

Cheers to Bill for helping promote not just TT, but model railroading too ! :thumbup:
Thanks for making the trip South. :grin:
Will definitely try to make it up to Vancouver in November with my little 3x6 CN branchline layout.

Great fun to see everyone again, and meet the others. Certainly the largest gathering & displaying
of TT I've ever seen ! Only negative was not enough time to see everything, but 1 day was better then none.

See you in November :wave:

Undoubtedly, Bill deserves great thanks - not only for his TT-modules, but for his promotion work of TT in the railroad modelling world of North America.
Bill, you are truly evangelist of TT in USA and Canada! :pray:

Home safe and sound. Long drive in the rain. No border issues.
Tired but very happy with the FanTTastic weekend.
Much more to say tomorrow after a good nights sleep.
