As for train shows, I suppose you have to do some thorough Internet searching for your area. Typically all the big websites only show the large train shows, and I doubt you'd want to spend all your time on the little Pizza layout at a national show. Look for any clubs in your area and they should all have events that are smaller and a lot more fun.

Yes , I've been doing some hunting for local clubs and events.
Finding some things of interest that maybe worth investigating.

Good to hear George, I hope your search ends well for you, even finding one annual show is worth the search. I think about the right number of shows to be 3, spaced evenly throughout the year.

Anyways, I submitted the layout to carendt.com and I recieved word this morning that the layout will be included in one of the upcoming scrabook updates. The new site owner recently rebooted the site and has made an effort the last few weeks to get the scrapbook updates rolling along.

Congrats on the upcoming post on Carendt. I need to remember to submit mine once I get some buildings and trees set in place.

Dwyane,

Thanks for the comment. Sorry it took so long to say that.

I do have news though for this layout, it has been featured in the latest Carendt.com scrapbook page!

Here's the link, layout is third from the top:

http://www.carendt.com/small-layout-scrapbook/page-118-june-2015/

While I doubt Gert will read this thread, I still need to say 'Thank You!' to him. And of course, thanks everyone for the encouraging, interesting, and sometimes comical comments, they really helped with this project. The layout is temporarily going into storage but it'll come back in a couple of months, ready for some repairs, improvements, and more realistic scenery.

--James

Fame in print James !  Well done.

I appeared in print once ......... on a Wanted Poster.

Regards,               Michael

Ps:
- what about your sectional interchangeable box idea ?. I thought it was a real winner.

Thanks Michael.

As for the interchangeable box idea, I'm half way there with my next project:

http://freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=6768&forum_id=7&page=2

Now I just need to figure out how to add a roof to it while still being structurally stable.

I'm saving the idea for On30, which I'll start later this summer or this fall. Doing anything for me in G scale was just too big for the space I reckon I would have. But N scale is the perfect platform the experiment with.
