Three videos from layout tours were posted to the X2011 West Facebook web page:

- SP Daylight running on Sacramento Model RR Historical Society 
- Sacramento area on the SP/WP-themed Sacramento Model RR Historical Society HO club layout
- SP Daylight running on the private Rocklin Subdivision layout

Anyone can see the above videos, you don't have to be a Facebook member.

We added some more photos from last week's 2010 SP Historical & Technical Society Convention to the X2011 West Facebook page:

http://facebook.com/x2011west

Included are sample shots from four Sacramento area layouts that will be open during X2011 West Sacramento:





More superb models displayed during the SP Convention:





For the HO modelers, Athearn booth there had a couple pre-production shots of their upcoming U50:





Anyone can see this X2011 West Facebook page, you don't have to be a member of Facebook,
and you don't have to login to Facebook.    (if you do login to Facebook, what you get is
the pictures are at higher resolution and bigger size)

Thx to all of our fans who have been enjoying X2011 West's Facebook - it's for you that we enjoy doing this.

Hope to see many of you in Sacramento in 2011.  But regardless of whether you can make it or not,
our goal is to give you live reporting all year, leading up to and during X2011 West July 3-9, 2011,
in real time.

Enjoy, and have a good week.  :-)

We were able to add 5 more final photos reported from the 2010 SP Historical Society Convention.

http://www.facebook.com/x2011west

They are of Southern Pacific live steam at the Sacramento Valley Live Steamers, who were running for
the SP Convention attendees on 10/2/10.  One cool sample:



Dig that live steam Cab-Forward!!   

The Sacramento Valley Live Steamers ( http://www.svls.org/  ) will be open during the NMRA National
Convention "X2011 West" - July 3-9, 2011.   You can see many years of photos from SVLS at:
http://yungling.smugmug.com/Live-Steam/SVLS and http://www.svls.org/Meet_Photos.htm

Photo by Evan Werkema.  Thx, Evan, for sharing these photos with us (and for your
many years of rail photo contributions in many places) :-)

Hope all of you have enjoyed our attempts to keep you updated on some major model railroad activities,
live, as they happen.   We'll be doing the same for you at NMRA Nationals 2011 "X2011 West" in Sacramento.
