      Bob, My name is Lee Barry. I would love to bring my 37X27 layout to your show but with great despair I cannot as I live on the other side on US in Bristol,Va./Tn. I had a Jim O'Connell build this layout last year. You might contact him to see if he has anything to bring. I took it to one show in Bluefield,Va./W.Va. last Nov., I kinda was the hit of the show even with its small size. I was invited to attend two other shows but could not as my wife and I had already made plans to go to our daughters' in Erie,Pa, up on the lake. I will make all three trips this year, I have already "laid down the law",ha.ha.
      Good luck with your show. Jim O'Connell lives in Santee,Ca. Jim's e-mail is jimo.crcmnvgtr@...

      Hello -

      Model Railroads of Southern California is planning a model railroad layout tour
      in the Redlands, San Bernardino and the Lake Arrowhead-Big Bear Lake, CA, areas
      on Saturday, June 25.

      We have yet to have a Z scale layout on a tour so if you have an operating Z
      scale layout and live the tour area, please contact me off list.

      This will be the twenty-fifth tour sponsored by the group since 2006. Over 300
      layouts have participated in these tours. The usual format will apply, that is,
      the tour will be self-guided and free, and I'll provide the publicity, schedules
      and maps. Attendance should be between forty to seventy visitors spread out
      during the hours you would be open.

      If you have any questions before committing to the tour, please feel free to
      contact me off list. I hope you'll join with other area layout owners and show
      your layout to your fellow model railroaders.

      Thank you.

      Additional Info: My Yahoo group has over 1,300 members. We have conducted
      free, self-guided layout tours from Santa Barbara and Bakersfield down through
      San Diego. I was the Layout Tour Chairman for the 2008 national conventions of
      the NMRA and Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society, and the 2011 Sn3
      Symposium. I am a past President of the Pacific Southwest Region/NMRA.

      The work I do for the Yahoo group is completely voluntary and I accept no money,
      gifts or favors for this work. All group expenses are paid by me.
