In conjunction with the 2016 O Scale March Meet, I hosted an informal open house for various traction enthusiasts and model railroading celebrities.
Approximately 15 people visited the layout and a great time was had by all.
It was an incredible honor having traction and model railroading celebrities visit the layout.

Alas, however, this wound up be a "last run". The layout, as of today, 5/1/2016, has been disassembled/demolished. Stay tuned for more details. The blog isn't going away, I'm just going to switch focus for the next few years. More to come ...
Wow - last run! That's a surprise. I look forward to seeing what you do next...ReplyDelete
It was a surprise to me too! But, life is unpredictable at best and change constant. Its how we deal with change is how we are defined. I don't consider it an ending but a transition to new and better things. I'm looking forward to making the new layout better! Stay tuned!Delete
Well, of course it was a last run! Running that 10 car train made the substation blow up which, in turn, started the Second Great Chicago Fire. (Terry, I'm sure you'll be regarded as the new Mrs. O'Leary for generations to come.) It was a shame watching the line go up in flames, but it sure was a spectacle.ReplyDelete
Hey, the real CTA can't run a ten car train! That we were able to do is amazing! I'm still finding traction tires laying around. Thanks for coming out, it was a pleasure having you out to visit the layout!Delete
