^^^ If you have happened to pick up one of those Polish BR38's from Roco, I wouldn't mind seeing it. Can I also assume you have Polish BR52 too? Looking forward to seeing you there.

Sadly just found out I won't be able to make the show, can't get the time off work. This makes a couple shows in a row
I've missed, I'll try again for the next one in November. Hope everyone has a good time and looking forward to seeing pictures !

I will bring few of my buildings and maybe some of my steam engines.
Please let me know if you are looking for something specific to display,
I will be happy to bring it along, if I have it.

My station corner could use a small station. There is a space about 8" square (20 cm x 20 cm).
I received an Auhagen Klasdorf kit last week but doubt I will have time to assemble it properly. Too much to do for the show.

There is room on two of the corner modules for a small village.

Anything you can bring will be appreciated.

Bummer!

Trains 2012 is from Friday November 9 through Monday November 12, 2012, with the public two day show being on the 10th and 11th. Book your time off now! This is the 30th annual Trains and may be the last for a while.

Been working on modules for the show this coming weekend. Cleaned track on new corners and tested with DCC. Murphy will no doubt be at the show but I am doing what I can to minimize his effects.

This is what i am bringing for the display.

Due to my slapdash methods of construction there are a few alignment issues. I hope that there is enough slack in the display to allow for this but if not I will have a flat carcass and enough track to make a filler module.

I will bring the DCC system (Digitrax Super Chief) and throttles and a bit of equipment.

I will be showing up Saturday afternoon at about 2:30 PM to unload and setup.
Sunday morning I will be there at 7 AM. I hope to be able to get away from Central Hobbies to spend some time at the display.

Hi Bill,
I think I could bring a small station, that should fit your space.
As for the village, I do not have a set of buildings that could work for a village, but I built a nice windmill, a very small church
and an old village hut... I think they could go together....

I have never attended the show yet, and do not know anybody....
so my question is how to find you, I mean your TT table... number or location ...?
I will try to arrive app 3pm

Also I wander if anybody would have Tillig 83321 or Tillig 83326 "EW 1 15 degrees right turnout" for sale.
I would greatly appreciate.

I may. Let me know if you don't end up with one at the show and I'll dig around.

When you arrive just ask around. Someone will have a plan showing locations of exhibits. It's not the same every show so no directions in advance. You're not on the list of participants and we may have to sort that out when you get there. If you're up to it join us for a meal afterward.
