After discussion with VTE I have submitted the following layout for our display.
VTEX 26 x 12 Display.jpg
It includes modules from everyone but could be changed to remove some if people wanted to bring fewer things to the show. Suggestions as to changes are welcome.
If Voytek can not make it due to weather issues we have enough modules to cover his space.
I hope to have a module cut up this weekend to make the 1/3 and 2/3 module pieces I need to make this display.
Not getting too much done as I have my usual post first train show of the season cold. Had today (Saturday) off because of it.

Hey team, what are the plans for the set-up? I assume it's going to be on Friday the 10th, right?

Yes we will load in and setup Friday.
I have received an e-mail today that says we can load in as early as noon.
That might be too early for me to get away from work.
I think 1:30 PM would work better for me. Have to check with the boss tomorrow.
Should be time for dinner afterwards.

What time would be good for you guys?

Essentially ready to go.
Have the loops rewired. The turnouts on one module are fixed.
One module has been sectioned into 1/3 - 2/3 pieces.
Working on a few models now including a surprise.

I received a corrected e-mail that says we can load in at 15:00 so that
is when I plan to be there to unload.

I need to go back to the store to pick up a load of product for the store tables but should
be back in time for dinner.

That sounds much better. The earliest I can leave work is at 14:45. Depending on the traffic, I can be at PNE at 15:00 or 15:15.

I am ready too:
  • plopped the new decoder into my new BR118 Loco (thanks Terry for bringing it over today)
  • rebuilt the old BTTB 4-unit double decker: it runs very smoothly now and the units do not come apart accidentally any more.
  • prepped my new (new to me...) German flatcars for a long-ish container train
  • put ballast and grass on the yard access modules

Hi Gays,
I will not be able to make it to the show this time. It looks like there is so much work to do here, at The Ranch before winter. Have fun, take pictures, so I can see how it went.
See you next time,
Voytek

Winter has already arrived, this year earlier than usual, so I have to change my plans.
