Sunday started at a more civilized time - 8:30.

After setting up the store sales booth, I was set free to run trains. Except for a few breaks back at the store, I was there most of the day.

Having run European Saturday, we started with North American equipment Sunday morning.
We setup the trains in the staging yard. We now have a fair amount of North American equipment.

Not shown were the wreck train and stock cars, and more.

Obviously we like tank cars, and hopper car trains.

At 11 AM we had a proper Remembrance Day Observance. Well done this year as it was 100 years since the WW I Armistice.

Things ran well. A few locomotives need service.
Later that day we switched to European equipment.

Four thirtyish we stared to remove equipment from the layout.
At five we started teardown and packup.
Voytek was loaded first and on his way.
After my van was loaded I moved to the store booth and loaded up store stock.
After Tibi was loaded the guys (I think) went off to dinner.

After the store was loaded, I went to the store to unload. Then we went to Swiss Chalet for a staff dinner. Then home to bed.

I unloaded Monday when I wasn’t napping.

It was a good show.

Some new equipment was run.
A bit was sold between us.

I had a Shapeways printed Canadian Coach at the show. Unfortunately it is such a badly printed piece of crap that it deserves the name ‘Shiteways’. Discussions are ongoing with Shapeway about this pos. So far they are only offering to refund my shipping.

My thanks to Terry, Tibi, Voytek, Graeme, and Xenia who helped make this a great display.

Now to hibernate over winter and hopefully work on TT-Scale projects until Western Rails in late March next year.
