Howdy Folks !
ARE YOU READY TO ATTEND IN 4 WEEKS ?
The 35th Annual National Narrow Gauge Convention
is now less than one month away !
Have you checked out the WEB SITE lately ?
I mean, have you looked at all the stuff we have online ?
- almost 300 full size pictures of model railroad layouts that will be on tour
- 15 YouTube videos showing the layouts and trains running on them
...ok the 15th video is a 3 minute walking tour to show how big a 3300 sq ft layout is
- 10 layouts have their own web site, which means thousands more pictures
- 78 Vendors will be there, many of them are manufacturers
- 52 different Clinics with descriptions of what people will be presenting
Did you read Charlie’s article in the current Gazette about his visit to Houston ?
Did you see the article on Chuck Lind’s On3 layout ?
( visit the new TTLC’s web site to see even more pictures his layout )
