p.s. who has area 51, do they slip in some drones ?

I have my modules loaded in the U-Haul trailer. Now what trains to bring. I always bring too many. Everytime I carry about 15 totes upstairs from the basement I think an HO guy could have brought up a 100 cars in one of my totes. At least being a largescaler will keep me in better shape so I live longer to enjoy my trains…


Deb and I finally figured out how to get our two new modules plus extensions, building and even some trains into a Prius. Should be a fun weekend.

Any one visiting the show is most welcome to visit the NHGRS layout and chat.


Want to thank all who attended the Big Railroad Show last weekend at the Big E fairgrounds. Total count was just over 23,000 attendees. The best part is meeting those folks you only chat with on the forum.

Saw some new products and made contacts with more manufacturers. Battery based systems were a hot product. MRC talked about a remote battery system and I saw a prototype of a HO system installed inside a GP-38 like diesel. Using a 3.6v lithium cell with a voltage multiplier that ran a dcc decoder and 2.4GHZ radio. The size of your thumb nail! USA made.

I had a chance to operate the Bachmann E-Z App Bluetooth system. Nicely done interface for a tablet or smart phone and smooth operation. Just buy a E-Z App loco for under $200 and download the APP. That’s it. Now to get it battery based!

See you at the next show. Don
