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.
Voytek


Our display is on the middle of the North wall around the centre divider curtain.
Just ask for the Pacific Northwest TT-Scale Modellers or me, 'Bill Dixon'.

Hi Terry,
I am about to leave my place shortly and hope that the Thompson and Fraser Canyons will not cause any delay...
I will be happy to (and hungry) to join you for a bite in the evening.
See you in the afternoon,
Voytek

--Setting Up--
First, the bad news. ConducTTor's U-Boat has not arrived and we can't display it at the show. The most recent information from tracking the delivery says that it hasn't yet been released from customs to Canada Post. Even though mail isn't delivered Saturdays I had hopes of picking up the parcel from the nearby post office branch, but it's too late.

The rest is good news so far. We have two layouts and apart from the less than perfect turnouts, things run well. This was just setting up for the show tomorrow I've already had fun. We have the revised layout by Bill Dixon combined with‭ a staging yard by me. I set up two trains and sent them out to run continuously without problems.

The second layout is a fine display from the Royal Alberta TT group (AnotherTTnut and CSD). CSD hasn't revealed his SW1200 yet, so you'll have to wait for that. The two drove for more than twelve hours to get here, and VoyTTek arrived, too, after driving five hours.

My friend Graeme, who models German rail but in HO, came into town for the weekend from his off shore island and helped me complete the staging yard and was on hand to help with today's setup.

After all that hard work and talk, we all except Bill had a meal nearby and talked some more.

A few introductory photos follow. It looks like the show will be fun.

It's pretty inTTense but it looks like I'll have time at the show to take lots of photos. Until then...
