Copetown RPM Meet - March 3, 2018

The Weatherman's (Stephen Nichol) display of custom weathered engines in HO and N scale.
Yesterday I attended and presented a clinic at the Copetown RPM one day meet. The attendance appeared to be about the same as last year with about the same amount of displays. I brought along a display of my faded rolling stock and some of my drop-in scenic swaps to compliment my talk. There was a total of four clinics and following the afternoon door prize draws three layouts opened up in the Hamilton area. Unfortunately that was the wrong direction for me and I passed up the offers to visit. Once again your ticket for the day meet was also good for Sunday's Copetown train show. More on the clinics shortly...George Dutka

S Scale modules appear to be at least 30 feet long.

  1. I have to confess, the CN banana was my doing. Messing with my pals.
