"Okay guys - which way are we going now?"
We did a lot of this!!!
Great shots Robin and Val you got some I missed gona pinch them he he he
A few more from me. This is a very well mades sawmill located in the Guelph Model R.R. Society Inc club layout
More of the Guelph club
I had the same problem Val had getting good photos. Far too many blurred or out of focus. Here are the rest from various layouts.
Tha last ones. It's sad to see the end of that old shay waiting to be scrapped.
Looks like you guys all hit different layouts than we did, except for Aberfoyle, which is always a must-see.
Biggest beef: will Waterloo Region club ever get more work done on scenery?
Biggest compliment: Baden club is better and better every time I see it.
Biggest surprise: #11 on the sheet (Bear Mountain???) I thought we had seen the whole layout, then went around a corner, and this layout went on for another 2 rooms!
Looks like it was a good time , too bad I missed it . I got close ...I was in Cambridge ( Galt ) on Sunday with another committment ....I wish things could have worked out for Saturday . maybe next year .
Cool pictures guys. Looks like the trip was a lot of fun.
Do any of you recall the location represented in the HO British layout? I spent a couple of weeks in Chester last summer, and the shots you took look a lot like it. Thanks again for the inspiring pictures!
Hi Jac , It is a modual 14ft by 10ft called the Buffers. Depicts scenes in the
1940 Midlands of England.
It was set up at the registration hall. Fantastic model!!!
Too bad we missed you Galt! Maybe next year we can hook up. My cousin in law (he's married to my cousin - does that count?) is a member of the Baden Club. I've been to see it while visiting them. We were hoping to make it over that way but just ran out of time.
I was with a friend and we both had our wives along, so they can get an idea for our ambitions in building a layout. I don't know how badly the women would want to hang around with a bunch of "geeky" model railroaders
I wonder how far some people travelled to do the layout tour? At the Waterloo club I saw a group in a van with New York plates!
Val, I almost shorted the keyboard out when i seen those firetrucks & fire station LOL. Great Pictures Everyone. Looks like you all had a fun time. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Wellllll......they married YOU didn't they?
Hehehe, couldn't resist!! All in good fun ROFL!!!
She did marry me, but I think she un-geeked me quite a bit Tonight I should be getting a CD of the pictures my friends took and I'll be able to share the layouts that we went to visit.
Looking forward to your photos G904
The Grenadier Guards band is a favourite of my wife. We had a club meeting at that layout last month.
Looks like you barely made it out of Guelph.
I was down in Washington that day, looking at cherry blossoms.
Ok, attached are some pictures of some of the layouts we visited, I don't have the guide here with me to tell you which layouts they are. I don't have pictures of all the layouts we went to, and all the pictures we took at Aberfoyle look like crap on my computer here (different software). I guess I'll take my own camera next year so I can get more pictures. I do have about 50+ pictures from last year at home.
Pic 1: N scale Ontario Northland layout, note nudists under bridge (keep in mind I wasn't the one taking the pictures).
Pic 2: Thomas and friends, in the background it looks like there was a recent earthquake.
Pic 3: Engine collection (same house as Thomas).
Pic 4: I'm not sure, Little Bear Mountain?
Pic 5: Beautiful church on the Baden club layout. I think I have at least a dozen pictures of this particular scene, now I'm on the hunt for the same kit to add to my layout.
Thanks fot the photos G904. That church is a beauty.
