Very, very nice layout!
And I like the RS3 too!

I've seen the yellow jeep on the photo ("below the winery"); who is the manufacturer?

The Show is over!!

We had a very exciting Sunday with a little less visitors than the record breaking Saturday.
The layout went smooth again and I had more time for good conversations, demonstration and letting young and old kids control a couple of trains on the layout!

Overall it was very much appreciated by everybody that they were able to see a TT layout live in action and a crazy guy who brought a working helix to a show... :whistle: And the layout was rate as the best layout of the Show! :P :thumbup:

On a quiet moment, I shot a little AVI of a couple of trains running around the layout:



Check it out!

I could have used some more helping hands during show hours. It was quite tough to operate, talk and handle the crowd. I hope that may some of you can join next year! Would be awesome! :clap:

And here are some more pictures from the Show.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2013!

Pretty slick, man. Wish I'd been there to see it. Nice collection, nice layout. Love the helix footage.

Thank you Mark! You are always welcome when you are in the area! Maybe we could have a little TT weekend session sometimes next year. What do you think?

Was part of a 20 car pack I got at Ebay. All made in China... ;-)

Hi Enrico,

This was a very impressive display, even more so considering it was a one man show, and in TT scale, too. Congratulations on a fine job, and I think all TT scalers owe you thanks for doing such a good job of putting TT in the spotlight! Any more info on the design, construction, and assembly/dis-assembly of your layout will be appreciated.

Thank you very much Bill!
As this was really my first show to present the layout, I was totally not prepared on the "Social" side. Many asked for a webpage link, business card or a Facebook page they could "Like" and follow the progress of my layout.
I thought that this might be a good idea and so I'm currently looking into the possibilities to create such a page, to share progress, tips & tricks any TT related news!
It seems, that this would be the media to share our passion to a larger audience.
It is just the bare start, but check out this link here:
