Re: National Train Show report, Day 4
- Jeffery, I think that the idea of a Z scale convention is a good one.
It should probably be planed to be relativly sparsly attended though.
Seems to me that since Marlkin and Micro Trains are not "competitors"
they should jointly sponsor the event. (IE pay for the hall). If the
conventions were held in a cool climate during the summer, I could
possibly get my wife to go also. I would suggest somewhere in the
middle of the country. St louis, or KC maybe.
What did you think of the Aspen valve gear? Their web site sure doesn't
do much to inspire me to send a check and clamor for immediate
delivery. Real pictures would help. Do they look like they are a
"craftsman" project of just an average evening project?
- Thanks alot for the great account from the Show, Jeff!
I especially appreciate the way you value the joy you give those who visit
I wish you every success in the further adventures of Val Ease Central!
Thanks for the great report.
Interesting that you should mention the Springfield Ma show. I attended
that show this past Jan and there was no Z to be found! I was disappointed
in that respect. (It was otherwise a good show.) Though I heard rumors that
it was expanding to 3 building next year. I hope to see some Z then!
Judging from the pic, Your Val-Ease Central is a fantastic layout. I would
love to get the opportunity someday to see it up close.
