      Who's going to 2019 NGRC Portland?

      Well, I am, my wife, and we'll sync up with Ted D. at the show.

       

      Looks like a lot of effort has been put into the tours, a lot of layouts are listed.

       

      We'll be there Wed evening - Sat am

       

      Greg

      I was hoping to make it, but that same week is a week of meetings for the beginning of the school year. If the show is open to the public on Friday, or Saturday I might make a trip south just for the day.

      Are you planning on heading north at all?

      I will be there with my wife from Thursday through Saturday.  My layout will also be on the pre-convention tour.   We hope to see quite a few old friends.

      I will be going. Hoping to take the Coast Starlight up and/or back but will likely be staying with family while I am there ...

      Well I'm not sure I can predict my future, but I've been offered a plane ticket and a place to stay, with family ... I hope to pry myself away for at least one night with the survivors and train stuff too.

      I'm looking forwards to meeting people in person!

       

      The number of layouts on tour is impressive.

      Hmmm ... Not you directly Greg.. But I do understand your reluctance to were one .

      I was just noticing  many were going to the show .... I was giving the know how to find them.. Most would say I didn't know we had them..

      I were mine most of the time that I go to shows... Sometimes I just forget to bring them ..

      Got nothing to drag, but always willing to get together and brag.
