With the lack of interest and funds, it looks like the trek to LA won't happen.

I think the choice is now: Chilliwack or VTE (and/or for some...)

If we do only one day of TT at Chilliwack, then VTE would be more worthwhile for you. The difficulty is the same as for LA. Bill Dixon is the only one with a van for hauling the TT Tracks layout.

For LA perhaps I could bring small corner modules down on Amtrak. I have no car, so accommodation and transportation in LA is a challenge. The corners with modules from California, assuming they're completed, could make a long oval display.

For Chilliwack, possibly with modules from California and from Voytek we could have a smaller display Saturday and expand it Sunday when Bill and Tibi bring the rest. But this is only a possibility and VTE on the other hand is an assured event for the whole weekend.

> I have a pickup truck, so I can transport your corners and my module. I can pick you up at Martinez, CA.

We can share a motel, that is close to the Botanic Garden, and the Long Beach Blue Line station. There is a bus along Pacific Coast Highway, so if you wanted to go into LA or other sights, it would not be too tough.

Thank you for your kind offer. Give me some time to think over the possibilities.

I'll be running around doing non-rail stuff, but I am interested in railstuff, too.

I might even visit the La Brea Tar Pits, if you are into natural history.

Not to mention odd railfan stuff (Highway 99) along the way.

Here's an LA museum possibility. (I gotta get there some day fairly soon.)
