Is that a Lionel Layout that I see before me?

Well done, guys!

The Sheboygan layout is three rail, it is geared to having children operate it, and is a big hit with them. The other layouts are Z, N, S and H-O, with 1 1/2" scale on display and setup outside for rides. Roger

Sounds like a nice variety. I see a gantry crane on the Lionel layout. Do you have any other operating accessories? They'd go over well, I think...log dumpers and so forth.

The HO M&S layout looks very nice, especially for a portable layout.

Gerard The Lionel layout was displayed by the LAKEHORE OSCALERS OF SHEBOYGAN and had a beacon and crossing flasher for operation accesories, but none the less attracted attention all day. The H-O portable is owned by our club, METRO MODEL RR CLUB Ltd. and was started over twenty years ago. It has won prizes at two National Train Shows. A typical attendance of 1000+ enjoyed the layouts and helped the vendors go home satisfied. Roger

Yup, they'll do that, even in the age of hyper-realistic video games and all kinds of flashy graphics. Those big tinplate trains sound GREAT on the traditional Lionel track, too. :)

Cordially yours: Gerard P. President, a box of track and now some L-girders.

That show is about ten miles from my home, and what I really like most about that show is the cost --- it is only $2 for adults, free for kids. It's the one local show I recommend to families which have a young child (or two, or three...) who have a casual interest in trains, because of the low cost. Yet it still offers a chance for more serious modelers to shop & swap, as well as reacquaint themselves with other modelers in the area.

Metro does a great job with the show.

What nonsense. Don't you read the scripture?

I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. (Isaiah 6:1)

Nonsense! It is a sin NOT to go to a train show!
