Took the weekend and went to denver for a model train show. We set up on Fri then performed Sat and Sun. Did’t even get on the puter for those few days. So I’ve missed a few things. i’ll get around a vist as time allows. Share a couple of pictures. Didn’t even take that many pictures. Then i have a bunch posted in my photo albums. It is always nice to get home.
Hope everybody had a good weekend and will have a great week.
This is one of the new modules. It hadn’t been on display before. It is a model of a small farm town in the mid 50’s. Most of the older duffs like me model in the 50’s. that was our childhood days
The show was held in part of the National Western Complex. This old building is now vacant. Here is where the brokers worked, buying and selling cattle. nearby are stock pens and packing houses. Most are now empty. Millions of cattle passed through these yards, fortunes were made and a few lost. A monument to a different era.
Then there is always the skyline of downtown Denver. No real tall buildings bcause bed rock is so deep.
It was a fun weekend. Met some new people and renewed some old ones. The crowds weren’t as big, blame it on the economy or the pig flu. Both are having an adverse impact on the econmy.
When we started doing this show 20 some years ago. attendance would be over 100,000, this one maybe 20,000 or so.
