All going well this is what we will be displaying at Trains 2014:

Should be a good display with three different layouts running trains.
With the shortage of time and track I don't think that a TT-Free-mo module will be ready to show.

We are confirmed for Trains 2014 with six name tags paid for, for the usual suspects.

Wondering if there is any interest in a Sunday only display at the Chilliwack show on Sunday October 19?

Bill - it looks like your TT-Tracks modules are not compatible with the "new" TT-Free-Mo modules, so will you be building a transition section(s) to keep from losing all the effort you have put into the TT-Tracks module set-up?

I will probably be there at least one of the days. We'll see how things go.

I have considered making a TT-Free-mo module that would hold one or two straight TT-Tracks modules. I can't use the corners as the curves are too sharp and the turnouts on the TT-tracks modules are way too sharp for TT-Free-mo.

I can see keeping the two displays separate, using the TT-Tracks display for some shows and the TT-Free-mo for others.

Be great to see you there.
There will be a name tag for you and your two modules will be there.

We're ready for another show weekend. This'll be brief because we haven't had much sleep and I've just had a drink and we'll be up early for Saturday at the show. Set-up Friday, my friend Graeme (German HO) and I helped Bill Dixon set up his TT Tracks layout. My new improved TT oval was not ready. Instead we'll try an oval made from Kuehn's starter set. For the moment a couple pictures for Arseny of structures by Bill. I got a different lens an extra stop faster for my DSLR and it looks like the photos willl be better.

Very nice barracks! :smile:
Are they cardboard ones?
Waiting for additional photos from your display and from the show at all! :wave:

Terry, what's your opinion of the Kuhn starter set (perhaps you gave it somewhere but I missed it)?
