On the last day of the convention I was fortunate to join a tour of several private layouts. The bus pulled out at 9 am and returned about 6 pm.
 I have included here some pictures of David Fletchers outdoor layout. His locos and rolling stock are a delight to behold
They are 1:20 and 1;24 running on 45 mm track = 3 feet  The layout is DC

Going around the fish pond
