    Thanks, bet I do...on Sunday afternoon at the show, all demos are for sale.
    Just pull a Marlon Brando, and "make me an offer I can't refuse".

    Where is the next show???

    Since I don't drive, it's hard to get out of town. So the shows that I get to need to be in T.O..

    OK TinGoat...was hoping to meet you in Brampton...the way the cities are growing, there's not much distance between West Toronto and Brampton....but if you don't drive, there is too much distance. Thanks again for your comments, maybe I can go in the next Toronto show as well, and meet you then.
    Best Regards / Mike

    Some time ago, you indicated there might be some interest amongst your colleagues, in Michigan, in scale 'O' or HiRail 'O' trestles and bridges. If you would like to contact me at :

    I would be glad to send you an information package by snail-mail,including specs, design criteria, construction methods, and photos, if you think these custom built items might be of further interest.

    Thanks and regards

    Good point ! But I've lived in small-town rural Ontario for the last 42 years, and attended over 100 fairs, and did volunteer work at many of them. I think it's no"prize bull" to say it's easier to clean up after the animals, than it is the people who go.
    Biodegradeably yours : Mike
