Last weekend was a local model railroad show put on by Howard Zane. Along with the train show though, was another event of sorts. Chris McChesney hosted an open house to his HOn30 WW&F on Friday night, and Gary White hosted an open house to his SR&RL Sn2 layout on Saturday. Was fun to see so much Maine 2 foot modeling, especially when Chris lives about 25 minutes away and Gary is about 10 minutes away. Unfortunately, I was running trains and not taking photos. Maybe next time! You can see Gary’s layout plan on Dave Keith’s website sn2modeler.com.
Graham and I attended the “C&P Junction” Mid-Eastern Region, Chesapeake and Potomac Division’s local NMRA convention on October 11th and 12th. I attended by myself on Friday and took Graham on Saturday. We had a great time and really enjoyed the various clinics that we attended. Graham especially enjoyed Bernie Kempinski’s Civil War era modular railroad, McCook’s Landing. If you every have a chance to go and see Bernie’s lay, or visit his home layout go. Military railroad modeling is not very common in our hobby, but Bernie has taken this area to a new level.
