      Here are some photos from NGRC. They are raw, unedited and with no captions or descriptions yet, but they will give you a flavor of what’s going on, at least from my standpoint. I think there’s also some other unrelated photos in the folder, including some remodeling of our home and the infamous burned-out build from the Mik’s Challenge of a couple years ago.

      And like I thought it being in the Northwest, a lot of logging railroads, and moss covered layouts. I'm so jealous of the thick green lush landscaping in the northwest. Oh well we will deal with it in our own way here in the furnace of Phoenix AZ. Look forward to more pictures.

      Wow, Greg.  Great shots.  I don't envy the judges of the modelling contest - there's some seriously beautiful models there!

      Awesome shots, Greg. Thanks for taking us along with you to the convention! I particularly like the fire car (made out of craft sticks!).

      Guys, that is Tom Miller's layout in the pictures from Gregory...who's running the layout now that he sold the place? Do you know Gregory? Did you meet them?

      Thanks.

      John is correct, and, in fact, Tom was there and talking to people that day. I don't remember the family's name but they have a store in town and sell apple cider and baked goods. The property will be used for special events, weddings, that sort of thing. I did not meet them but I saw the son and waved. Others did meet the owner at the store and described them as very nice people.

      The post by Greg Hile was particularly rewarding.  Some great railroads and models to be seen certainly.  Lots of ideas for those setting up or adding to their pikes.  One photo did cause some mirth here and that was the paddle store.

      Thanks, everyone. I just got back last night and am exhausted. Aside from NGRC, I was also visiting family in Olympia and in Portland, including several visits to the hospital to meet my granddaughter who decided to enter the world a wee bit early. She’s growing like a weed and is up to a little over 4 lbs now, and doing great.

       

      I had some issues syncing photos to my Flicklr account, so there might actually be a few more. I might also have info on the winners of the modeling contest — not sure if I captured it or not, and, if possible on Flickr, I might be able to add some commentary to photos. No guarantees!

       

      Greg

      John asked about who is running Tom Millers layout now that it is sold.   For the open house he was there doing the operating.  I do know a little about what the future plans are for the place.  A local company that makes apple cider is going to  build a plant to make hard cider on the property,  I'm guessing in the old machine shop building and use the building where the F scale is as a tasting room.  The  layout will stay.  That's really about all I know.   It looks like all the 1.5 scale track is still there. I don't know what the plans are for that.

      Thanks for trying.

      The first 2 are the same and there are sideways and upside down ones too, in the other.

      Is there a setting for Portrait/ Landscape?
