Alrighty, I'll break the ice.
--almost broke my monitor!

Here are a few pics. No 1 shows the guys as I found them. No 2 and 3 are the Gold Coast fellows. No 4 is something I'd like to see in TT. Others took pictures which may be better. I don't like using flash but the lighting at the show is marginal for available-light photos.

...because I hadn't gotten around to taking any pics yet?

I did grab a couple shots at the show, I'll post them a little later this evening.

Those aren't my paint jobs - those are some models to look forward to seeing from GC themselves! There's definitely a few of them that I'm eagerly anticipating the release...

So here are some pics I took...

A view of CSD's models on display:

Another view of CSD's models:
tt2.jpg


My in-progress BL2 with a number of Gold Coast preproduction samples (can't wait for that SP Overnight box to become available!), and a couple of gabbysuz's locomotives:
tt3.jpg


Another view. I also can't wait for the various map and slogan versions of the Santa Fe boxcar!:
tt4.jpg


An overview of the table and the lads:
tt5.jpg


All in all, the meet was great, and our table attracted a LOT of attention; there were times when the biggest crowd around any table was at OUR table! And I have no idea how many times I heard people say "This is TT scale? What a great size!" And there were also some who stayed a goodly length and asked all sorts of questions...

Really looking forward to the next meet - hopefully, can get more people there in November!

I swear if I ever walk into a show and see a table of TT I'll probably crap myself : ))))
