Report from the Narrow Gauge Convention
Just one example is this great scene is from an On30 layout called "Storm King".
One nice feature of this convention was that the layout and vendor rooms were opened from 8:00am to noon and from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. So everyone got a chance to get out in the afternoons to the California State Railroad museum and to the many home and club layouts that were on a self guided tour. Our crew visited 9 layouts including 2 garden railways. While I have seen many G scale modular layouts at shows and a few at botanical gardens, this was the first time I had ever seen one in some ones yard and can see why it has become so popular.
This was another successful outing for the modules. I don't get to as many N scale conventions as I would like and after attending this narrow gauge convention I know I will attend others in the future. It gives me more options to attend an event without too much traveling. I may even be interested in attending a garden railway convention if it's close by.
