Ramblings of a frustrated armchair Railway Modeller

Everyone is entitled to my opinion, so I've decided to enter the blog-o-sphere in order to share them with you.
My focus is the rationale and development of my model railway, but I am likely to wander off topic from time to time.

Sixth Annual Ontario Narrow Gauge Show

Hello Narrow Gauge Fans,
The Sixth Annual Ontario Narrow Gauge Show has come and gone.
As a member of the Narrow Gauge Madness Gang, I am one of the organizers for the show. The show remains successful but attendance is down for a second year in a row.

Blame it on the lousy weather that we had on the day of the show - two years running - as well as the price of gas.

This is an exclusively Narrow Gauge Rail focused show. You won't find any Thomas the Tank Engine or Underground Ernie here unless they have been kit-bashed into Gn15 critters or On30 Locos.

The location of the show is in Schomberg, Ontario, Canada which is a quaint and modelgenic little town just a short drive north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

We had a little excitement midday when the smoke from the BBQ situated just outside the front door set of the fire alarm.

We persevered.

After a little navel gazing, we've decided to start planning the Seventh Annual Ontario Narrow Gauge Show! This time we are hitting it harder than ever.

  1. I've just picked up the August 2011 copy of Railroad Model Craftsman with a review of the show on pages 73-75 by Vince Pugliese: http://www.rrmodelcraftsman.com/

    Thanks Vince!!!
