    Yes you can post your links to videos/pictures from the 2010 Medford Z Scale Convention here.

    The two Challengers again. Jeff's is pulling PFEs. Mine is pulling UP passsenger cars. The first car is appropriately enough named "Challenger".

    Oops. How did that get in here? :)

    Earlier my Challenger easily pulling 16 autoracks. So yes, they can pull a pretty good load.

    I did not take any show pictures, as my camera is too old a model, and was just zooming in and out when trying to focus. Lighting was a bit too low, so that's justification for a new camera budget.

    I did get these on the trip home though:

    Thanks for the pics!
    Hey Robert regarding your last mountain one, we got the same panorama last Tuesday here, it was quite a view, 6 inches of snow everywhere with the Dandelions getting trough the snow with 4 inch tall green grass under a white blanket with a 27 degrees temperature. And now it is 86 degrees, 2 seasons in only a few days, a very weird mother nature that we have lately.

    I got you beat on the Mt. Shasta pic. There was a cold front coming from behind me and it hit Shasta just as I got there this morning.

    Railroad Park in Dunsmuir. A Shay in pretty good shape - if you drown it in enough black paint!

    One last picture for today. And it helps if you bring your own floodlight.

    Ben,
    This is Joe's web site, but he hasn't posted any pics yet. I imagine he will note a special heading about the convention when he does. Joe is a very busy boy these days.

    I'd like to see this Willamette running again. I think we've only got one functioning Willamette loco in the world right now.

    I love the Z scale greenhouse complete with crops going to town. NICE!

    Karin,
    That is one of my favorite ideas for a layout, ever. I loved the way you used to contour and bark of the burl to make the geography of the layout. Very creative. Nice buildings, too, by the way.
