Another one in the can….

13th Tour

Its been a few days since the tour and I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the day. Overall the turnout was down, I think the final tally was 780 registered, we had 300 (exactly) here, which is a record for us, almost half the people registered came here, which is encouraging. Thanks mom for counting…

The weather has to be just right to get a large turnout, if it is snowing, or threat of freezing rain, only the hard core modelers will show up, and the opposite is true, if it is warm and sunny, only the real enthusiasts will come. The weather being very warm and sunny kept a lot of people at home raking their lawns….

Nonetheless it was still a very good tour, one of the best yet for us! Had lots of fun and kept the trains running all day. Colin and Brian came through with their offer to run trains for the day, and it looked like they enjoyed themselves, they stayed for most of the day. Maybe they would have left earlier, but they couldn’t likely get to the door!

A couple of times the crowd was so dense we could not let anyone else into the basement, but that didn’t last too long.

In the weeks following the tour we have the “owners tours”, four evenings which groups of the owners will open their layouts again to allow the other layout owners open on tour day to drop by. I find these are as enjoyable as the layout tour itself! Tonight is the first of the tours, mine is on the last evening next week.

With this out of the way I can get back to construction and start up some limited operating sessions, finally!

I think they are having a moment of silence…..
