My van is not currently capable of making the trip. Needs a lot of $$ or replacing.
As to driving back, I need to be back in time to open the store at 11 AM Monday.

Re: Supertrain - Calgary AB

If people want to go to Calgary, I am willing to lend my modules for the setup.
If I can find a cheap return flight I would come out on the Sunday.

I also favour January.
I agree, December is going to be too busy for a setup.
Weather permitting January would be better.

Re: TT-Tracks

BCSME is willing to open up for a few weekends for a TT-Scale setup in December or January. While the station does not have air conditioning, it does have heat. As there is no requirement to leave access for the public we can be larger than we usually are in the station. It would be a good time to s...

Re: TT-Tracks

Thursday was Remembrance Day, a day to pause and remember those who fell in the past wars. As I had the day off, it was a day to finally finish the transfer of the TT-Tracks web site to the new host.

Re: A look into my work

Hi Bjoern

Good to hear you are doing well.

Re: TT-Tracks

Been a quiet three months. Diner was good. The company was good, the beer was cold and the food was good. The restaurant could use a good cleaning, especially the carpets. This Faller Bridge (B-539) faller-539.jpg looks silly with a single Marklin C Track on it. I wonder if it would look OK with two...

Re: TT-Tracks

Saturday will be a good day.
For the first time in eighteen months, a few of the local TT-Nuts will get together for Beer, burgers and BS at our favorite Red Robbin.
Lots to catch up on.
