My video from the show is up and it is jam packed with trains and a very 'corporate inspirational' sound track!! (Trust me, you don't want to hear our wacky background conversations! :P)

Such a fantastic meet, excellent layout, and great time all around.  I had the pleasure to meet our very own @altohorn25 and we successfully integrated some Modutrak into the setup!

The modutrak module is at 6:12 and again at 10:35 in the video, right? I recognize the double-deck bridge over the river from seeing it at Harper College in 2013 & 2014.

Great video Mark! Showcased a lot of action and locations on the layout. I also tried my hand at making a video of the show, and it ended up being 70 minutes long! eNjoy:

Upvote to both videos 10,000 times.
 It's been 16 months since we did our last show. There have been so many things that I spent my time doing that wasn't train related. Not having a show  to get ready for put train stuff on the back back burner. I was having a hard time getting motivated to get ready for our next show mid July.
Then Mark posts that video of long a$$ trains snaking through some well sceniced modules and across those fabulous bridges.
 I realized how much I missed doing shows and running my long a$$ trains.  :(

Then @EL3632  posted his video!!!

Not only were there lots of close ups of really cool trains passing through great scenes, but some of the trains were like MY trains,  D&H, E-L, DL&W, Erie!  That made me really miss my trains. Not to take anything away from the other wonderful, beautiful trains, but to watch the Lackawanna steam with a KV caboose, Stillwells, Boonton coaches, and the Adirondack with PAs!
I watched the whole thing twice.
I have one more project outside to finish then I can get back to work on my "Lackawanna-ish" oNe-Trak modules.
 Thanks for the motivation, guys, looks like you had big fun.

Thanks @x600! Those are all mine, glad you like them so much! The DL&W Mikado's flanges were too deep, and it did not run much as a result, something to work on for next time! I tried to get as much video of it as I could, though. The D&H train is actually meant to represent a Penn Division excursion train in the 1970s, I do not have the D&H business car, so I subbed in my club's business car instead. It was fun seeing my trains, specifically the 1975 (EL, D&H) and 1981 (CR Patches, D&H Patches/Bleed Through GP38-2) era freight trains, snake through the broad, sweeping curves that FreemoN allows and really look like they belong. Plus, everyone there was awesome and the layout ran unbelievably smooth, at least for me, who is used to doing something similar to the crazy track plan we ended up with, but with N Trak (N Trak 2.0 is a name I have heard thrown around?). Regardless, this was my first FreemoN event and will not be the last. I already have module ideas in my head (my current dream module is Starrucca Viaduct, which I think can be pulled off, eventually).
