The Trackers have been invited to present a layout at the 2014 TCA Eastern Division York Meet. The dates for the meet are April 24-26, 2014, with setup on Wednesday, April 23, 2014. Due to the size and complexity of setting up the layout, ALL modules must be on site on WEDNESDAY, to ensure there is enough time to assemble and test the layout prior to the show opening on Thursday.
We are currently considering doing 2 layouts. One which is command control, and one which is conventional control. Sign up sheets were passed around at the meeting last night, which yielded a great amount of modules. We are still in need of more modules. If you are interested in participating, please email Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
The number of modules
How many tracks the modules have
The type of track on the modules (tubular, gargraves, etc…)
If you are interested in doing a conventional only layout, then please let me know that as well. We are trying to gauge if there is enough interest to do that.
Also, this show is an exposure of the club to a large number of people who are well versed in O gauge trains, and the club really needs to put its absolute best foot forward. If your modules are in need of some work, please consider spending the time to touch up the paint, cleanup/re-do scenery, etc… It will go a long way in making the layout look as great as possible.
Justin Krause and George Tsakiris
PS – As most are aware, Hotels around York book fully, and often book up early. If you are considering participating, make a reservation as soon as possible.
