Home School Train show this last weekend

Unread postby aadti » Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:26 am

Was able to go to the Riverbend Train show this last Saturday at the Home School building. The first thing I noticed was that it's a much smaller show then I remember it. Anybody else notice this?

The last few years it hasn't been as big as in years past.

I am a member of Riverbend although I couldn't attend this year. We have had some vendors drop out recently, and the club has gotten a bit smaller. However, we're putting in a new Upper Peninsula layout in the Sunset Manor retirement home and membership is increasing.
Anything can be fixed with WD40 and ductape......... Right?

Where in the UP are you guys modeling?
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.

Marquette Ore docks, Munising, Soo Jct, that area. I'm not too up on the location, I just have access to the trackplan. The new layout will be 2 decks with a reverse loop on the ends. The ends will also have staging. I'll try to get a list of the towns next time I'm there.
