The ETEGL heads to Columbus...
Aside from electrical gremlins and an ice storm for the trip home, the ETEGL enjoyed a fun weekend of trains and fellowship at the Great American Train Show in Columbus, Ohio the weekend of February 12, 2005. Here are a few choice pictures (click on the picture for the full size version):
In addition to the H.O. layout, the unfinished CarZtenbahn made its debut:
Our new staging modules were a resounding success, after a few bugs were ironed out. Trains could be added or removed without upsetting the running of other trains. The rolling stock was constantly being changed, without any 'dead time' on the layout. Great work, Bill Bosse!
Another highlight of the weekend was the constant train traffic out behind the show venue, where long freight trains passed on four tracks and two levels!
It was a great weekend. I'm sure everyone agrees, and we're all looking forward to another great weekend of trains at the GATS in Michigan in March!
