      Do they ask any questions about the build, or do they just look at what they can see, and judge from that? Great job on that and on the LSC guys on the station! It’s now officially too nice to go outside! Carlene should be clearing a space for it and the trophy.

      Pete, 

       

      I don't believe they asked any questions, but they were well informed.

      Pete entries are allowed to have a page or two of text and pictures describing the build, materials, inspiration...etc. Last year the entries were judged by certified NMRA contest judge. This year they used a committee. Each person judged all entries individually and then they collectively chose a winner. I am not sure how many people were on the committee but the number three was thrown around.

       

      Thanks for the support guys.

      Congrats Boomer! You were a busy man. Boomer also hosted two clinics.

      I enjoyed meeting you and David M. and I hope your continued travels are going well.

      I‘ll post some photos of the Friday and Saturday layouts when I get home in a week or so.

      R. J., I asked if anyone saw you.  Thought you'd be around since it was in your neck of the woods.  Glad to hear all is well and your continuing to disrupt the neighborhood.

      Sorry I have been out of touch the last few days. My computer blew up its hard drive (for the second time). I am back home  now and breaking in it's replacement.

      Unfortunately I lost the pics from the convention layouts but I think other got that covered. Worst thing was the loss of the videos of the TVRM 2-8-0 on the turntable and at the wye.

      Be back on in a couple of days once I get all my files and settings reloaded.

      Well as they say S happens and sure would have liked to have been there.  I've kind of cut back tho on train operations.  Still trying to get a new RR built off the ground just can't get energized.  Later RJD

      Good to hear you made it home. I enjoyed traveling around the area with you, as I wouldn't have thought of Andersonville for a side trip. I'll  see if I can send you a few pics of the tours.
