NSE 2019 convention photos, layouts and videos are all up on Facebook - search for the T-TRAK & NSE Convention Facebook pages

Anything out there other than Facebook?

Hmmm..not finding anything else . I looked at the NSE FB page and there is nothing there of note other than pictures some of the event happenings, T-trak has some pictures. I see a video from Mark w showing the RW baggage car on the Free-Mon Nebraska modules, but no announcement info of anything new beyond what we have heard already.Reports from these shows gets worse every year it seems.

I'll be at the NMRA trade show coming up in a couple weeks - so I should be able to see what is out there .

Not surprised. The multiple recent issues with China production seems to have put a damper on new projects. If I were in the biz, I'd be sitting back, too, waiting for the smoke to clear before committing more capital to development projects that could blow-up once tooling was done. OTOH, we had a fantastic run of new products from what seemed like everybody just a few years ago. In so many words, we were spoiled. Time to take a breather and work on the layout. ;)

According to the website, the manufacturer breakfast is tomorrow; Sunday, so maybe stuff will be announced/leaked then.

Lunde studios had a sample of a modular curtain wall that looked pretty promising as a basis for larger industries. will post pics when I unpack my camera and download them.  Trainworx had artwork for the next run of 53' dry vans including a couple of Schneider variations, at least 3 Werner, 2 white and one blue, Ray Stephens, Walmart(?) plus some modernish food tankers, with a couple of different milk producers that caught my eye ( I am from the dairy state...). look for announcement on their website soon.
One of my highlights was FINALLY getting to see the Reid brothers iconic Cumberland valley systems. The level of detail is incredible!

That is nice, but I'm still awaiting another batch of truck parts from them (specifically the wheel sets).   It's been what, like 2 or 3 years now?  I'm beginning to doubt those will ever be available for sale again.  :(

So, the Reid Bros. layout is still operational?  I have one of the Kalmbach N-scale books with a photo of that layout on the cover from the early '80s.   When was the layout built?  It probably approaches its 50 year anniversary.  Amazing!  Probably one of the longest operating private layouts.

Hopefully the Kato BigBoy will out pull the Athearn one by a wide margin.

*** try emailing Pat, I was able to buy several sets of singles and duals, as well as some undec trailers, 70 & 100T wheelsets, and body mount coupler adapters from him

I believe it is aprox 40 years old. details keep being added, it is incredible, and still DC.

Peteski, all of the small packages on the table are wheels!!!https://www.facebook.com/224986998278953/photos/pcb.455642868546697/455642725213378/?type=3&theater

WOW!  They are back and available now, or soon?!  I pretty much gave up on them, and I didn't see any  announcements, or even mentions of them in the forum. And of course the Trainworx website is not very helpful - last "latest announcement" is from about a year ago.

Peteski:  I think Trainworx is almost as frustrated at the delays as we are.  The last I heard they were holding off on announcing new items until the delayed ones were at least close to ready.  Of course, "I heard" isn't an official statement, but it seemed reasonable.

If they're starting to announce new stuff, maybe delivery of the old is close.

So was there anything else out of the manufacturers breakfast aside from the Kato news?

Fox Valley? Atlas? N Scale Kits? Trainworx? Wheels of Time?

Thanks

I read something about FVM doing well cars but no details were given. I think FVM had released some info about well cars maybe 2 years ago?
