Frolin Marek


Howdy Folks !





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 ?
