I'm the guy who usually takes the pictures at the event with a grand finally group photo.  Make sure I get you as you have piqued my interest as to what Ed gave you.  Look for the guy walking around with a Nikon D500 slung over the shoulders.

Just got back. Was pretty decent! Little bit of everything was there; FreeMoN, TTrack, Ntrak. Handful of vendors.

Just got back.  A ton of fun after two year hiatus due to Covid.

Pictures coming soon.

Agreed!
I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to catch up with ya, but it looked like you were having plenty of fun.




I too had plenty of fun (with Uranus).


It occured to me as I was driving that I need to make sure I have a good "Railwire inspection train" together: cars representing years of combined asshattery.
I've been fortunate to acquire many cars from many friends here and I think it'll be fun to pull them all together.

No problem Ed.  Sorry I didn't take the group photo until Sunday as people said there will be more kids around.  And the show was hosted by the 4-H Model Railroad Club afterall.

Narrowminded did come back on Sunday so he made the group photo.

I really enjoyed the show. 8)  All N Scale with decent turnout helped.  I also saw Yankee Dabbler's display of wares.  I had heard of the shop but never realized what extensive inventory he carried.  Impressive and one to remember when looking for... stuff.  :)

I brought my P5a's with me and ended up running them on a couple of layouts.  @EL3632 Kenny saw one running and being aware of the pickup issue, was intrigued with the reliable performance.  After running it himself he told me of another fellow who had one that they tried running Saturday morning with nothing but trouble every few inches so we took mine to that layout, put it on the track, and Kenny proceeded to run it around for hours including quite a bit of very slow speed running.  This was how he introduced me to Chris, the owner of the P5a that had been troublesome.  I had a few spare sets of the truck supports with me so we installed a set in his loco and it immediately ran fine.  He then assembled a nice military train and ran it trouble free for several hours Saturday afternoon.  That led to a few more owners who had left their troublesome locos at home, asking for parts.  In all, I suspect we fixed five more locos.  I certainly hope so. :)

Also saw a number of the folks from here, including Mike @MK .  I suspect I'll be doing this show again.
