Photos from the Fredericton Model Train Show

Here are my photos from the Fredericton model train show.

Fredericton Model Train Show

It was a good show. There was a good assortment of displays, from the Fredericton modules to the N-Bender layout to the O-Scale layout from Fredericton, even to the wooden trains my son fell in love with. It was good to catch up with a few old friends there, too. The only problem came when I tried to leave – my son did NOT want to go!

Saint John Fall Show This Saturday


The Saint John Society of Model Railroaders are holding their fall show this Saturday, November 8, at the Island View Lions Club in Quispamsis from 9 AM to 4 PM. I’m not sure if I’ll be there or not, but I’d like to go!

I definitely will be attending the Dartmouth Model Train and Hobby Show at the Sportsplex in Halifax, NS next weekend, November 15-16.

Dartmouth Model Railroad Show

On Saturday November 17 I visited the Dartmouth model railroad show with my two youngest kids. I was pretty impressed with the displays – some really nice work there. The usual vendors were there and I walked away with a 3-pack of container cars and a signed copy of Jay Underwood’s new book From Folly to Fortune: The Firing of James Richardson Forman. I look forward to reading it!

I put a bunch of photos in my gallery but here are a few for your enjoyment.

Here’s a Lego train running around the layout. Note the display screen on the wall showing what the steam locomotive is seeing.

Kevin G took video of quite a bit of the show:

Model Train Show in Miramichi this Saturday

No, I haven’t forgotten about this blog. I’m finally starting to uncover my layout now that the basement is finished.

If you’re in the Miramichi area this Saturday (September 22), take in the 4th Annual Model Train Show, sponsored by the Miramichi Crime Stoppers. It’s at the Northumberland Square Mall (in Douglastown) from 10 AM to 4 PM. For more information contract W Blake Johnstone at 773-6859.

I went to the 2006 show and I liked it. It’s one of the smaller shows but still good. Model train photos
