Virginia Beach On30 Meet

Back from a fun weekend in Virginia Beach with a bunch of 0n30 folks. Had a chance to put some faces with names. Tom Sullivan deserves a great big THANK YOU for putting on this wonderful event. Lots of long-time and new narrow gauger's in attendance. (Mark Chase, Bill Davis, Steve Sherrill, Bill Uffelman, and Steve Fisher to name a few). Clinics were given on soldering, paper models, weathering wood, weathering and reality, show and tell, and what's new in dead rail.

Tom had his two-foot based On30 line running for the group. Tom's done a great job getting the layout together. I failed to recognize some of my own handywork displayed. Tom did a great job on the shingled engine house!

We also visited a nice western On30 logging layout by Bryan Brown, a short drive away. Bryan has been building some wonderful Serra West kits and his layout displays them very well.

Tom Colasurdo provided some AWESOME smoked pork barbeque that went over very well with the group. Overall it was a wonderful time. Not enough time to see it all, talk to everyone, so we'll have to do it again!
