I will be there too. I will bring, I hope, the new small corner module.

Been doodling ideas for the second display using the two new loops.

This is what I have come up with.
Just a modification of the first display with changes to add the two new end loops and allow for a longer yard.
I had a few other ideas but they either ended up too wide or too long.
This needs no new modules or changes to modules other than the new end loops.

This will do. It's temporary, we will make it work for two days. I will focus instead on the layout from the Chilliwack thread.

I have asked to setup Friday evening.
I have the day off so can be there at any time.
What time would the rest of you like to setup?

I'm in Winnipeg for a brief stopover and should be in Vancouver Wednesday. This is to confirm email sent to Bill to say I'm available for setup anytime Friday. 6 PM worked before but we kept the place open a bit late.

Looking forward to this. :dance:

OK, forget this. The forum will not allow attachments with .z21 extension. Grrrr. Will email it to you instead.
Guys, here's a first. This library has all Terry's, Bill's, Voytek's and my locos I accumulated over the years. I will keep this updated and share it before each show.

The .z21 is a specific file extension for what ever program you used to create it. Not everybody would use the same program on their devices. It's not a file that is portable between different platforms.

I should make myself clearer: at the shows we run the display with a Roco Z21 controller. We all have the Z21 app on our tablets and phones. The app allows exporting/importing the loco library, thus sharing it on all devices running the app.

I only wanted to make the library available for download to all show participants. Since then, I emailed it to everybody. Second most elegant solution.

You are correct: it is created and can be opened only by the Z21 app on mobile devices.
