    Will the vendors and manufacturers still be there on Saturday or Friday only?

    We have not heard of any vendors or manufacturers that are doing Friday only. There might be some individuals that are there Friday morning for the convention registrees, but the reason we added the Saturday show was at the request of the vendors.

    Just a few days now! Following along on Mark's journey with great interest! Looks like he is having a great time.

    Two shameless plugs, the main one is if you are there, make sure to stop in to the Online Modelers Meet Up at 6:30 local time on Wednesday! Second, if you use Woodland Scenics foam roadbed or need the 4 storage boxes in these pics, find me and they are yours for super cheap or less.

    You'll have a longer time on Saturday, as we are open from 9am to 3pm. On Friday it is open to non-registrants from 12-4. The clinics are held both days.

    Alert! We have had a schedule change in our tour routing for Wednesday! The hosts of 2 of our stops on the layout tour are unable to host (they are sick) leaving only 1 layout on the tour. As this is not a great value, we have chosen to cancel the 8am and 12pm tours. If you are booked on either tour, you will be receiving a full refund. No changes to the other tours.

    We apologize in advance.

    A big Thank You to all of the folks who contributed photos for the cyberspace modelers meetup at the N Scale Convention. And to BNSF FAN for putting the slide show together. Some amazing photos that I missed on TB.

    Colleen and I are on the way back from the NNSC. I looked very carefully and did not see any products for which Reader's Digest was responsible. :ROFLMAO:

    I took a large number of photos, many of which will wind up on the virtual cutting room floor. There were three large layouts: one T-Trak, one N-Trak and one FREMO/Bend-Track. Unfortunately, and as usual I am told, the lighting was not the best. Here's a grab shot from Colleen's iPhone taken on the BendTrack layout.

    It was great to get together with some of the folks I've not met before (like Richard/BNSF FAN) and others I have not seen in years. Next year the NNSC goes to Reno.
