    Yep! After thinking about it for some time, and despite a lot of recent negative comments on the Atlas forum about the NMRA, I finally joined up!

    My main reason is to be able to attend the big convention that takes place here in Toronto in July. There are going to be some awesome clinics and I'm really looking forward to attending as many as I possibly can, since I need to learn how to do everything:D :D :D

    Now all I need to do is get my t-shirt printed up. What t-shirt is that you ask? The one that says in huge bold letters "Women run trains too!" It's either that or slap on an engineer's cap and a big ol' handlebar moustache... personally, I'm leaning towards the t-shirt!

    :D Val

    Save some time to see the displays, I went with the modular group to the show in St. Louis (2001), and we set up a 40' X 44' HO modular layout. We were one of many, and there were ideas to be had at every one. Enjoy,

    Welcome to NMRA, Val.
    The convention is a wonderful week. (I've only been to one -- back in the 70's). Next thing you know, a guy named Clark will be asking you to help out.
    I'm on one of the layout tours; I guess they want to show how not to do it.

    Great disguise Val! I swear I've seen that guy at model railroad flee markets around here! :) Hmmmmm, makes me wonder...how many out there have received a train engineer's cap as a gift? I've been given four so far!

    Yes, welcome to the NMRA. ALso, one of the finest sides to the national convention is the Train Show. It is unbelievable! Be sure to take that in as well.

    BTW - I know that I've seen that guy with the mustache at our train show/meets. :)

    Welcome to the NMRA! I'm a life member since 1977, and I really appreciate all that NMRA has done for our Hobby. Think of the NMRA Standards - where would our hobby be today, when every manufacturer had its own standards?
    About your outfit: GREAT! Just take care that they don't promote you to honorary president or something like that!

    Why thanks old chap - glad you like it. It's a little ticklish but I'm sure I'll get used to it! :D :D :D :D

    Bill - yes, it's all your fault!!!! Isn't Photoshop fun?!!

    And to everyone who extended a welcome to the NMRA, thank-you. I am thrilled to be a member, and I think the convention in July is going to be a totally awesome experience. Can you believe that Dave Frary is going to be there giving a demo? Wow!

    :D Val
