S Scale Social 2011

S Scale Social - 2011 Group Photo.

I had a great time yesterday at the S Scale Social. Now in its second year, this is a one-day gathering of fellows from Ontario and the Northeastern USA who model in 1:64.

It was great to put faces to names, visit with old friends and make new ones, engage in a bit of iron horse trading and discuss current and future S scale plans. I contributed a few pieces to the Bring And Brag – my baggage-RPO car, my two 1937 AAR CNR boxcars, and my in-progress GE 44 Tonner, plus the grain building from Cheltenham. I had a number of questions about each, so I’m glad I hauled them with me and that others benefitted from my work.

A special thanks to my friend and co-host of The Model Railway Show podcast, Jim Martin, who organized the second annual event. Well done!
