      At SUPER TRAINS, be sure to look in on Grant Smith's "Big Boy" display...booth G L67.  Big Boy locomotives are Grant's passion.

            He was just here in Ottawa, picking up a few of his Big Boy, HO models.

       Say hello to him for me...please.

      Actually was chatting with Grant this evening (move-in day) He ordered space for a 20' table to allow a longer run of his smaller scale BigBoys   the G-gauge  in the background on the tables.    I set him up with our move-in co-ordinator as he had been hoping for a suspended backwall for hanging a couple pictures he had brought ,,, he was also setting up a flat crn for videos -- bigboys likely :)

      I think this forum lites up on my playbook without pwd input if so,  I'll show him directly your post either sat o sun !

       

      ** cdn vendor  ;)   at the show "up to 75% off"   ... the majority of the stock is 40% off ! 

      That booth will likely be swarmed tomorrow am,  possibly even before the doors open  LOL !!

      It looks to be their closing out sale !?    I asked Grant if they did this last yr (i missed last yrs) and he said "no" maybe a couple items but not all in booth as this yr !

       

      nite (geeez it should be 'lites out' by now.. going to be hurtin' tomorrow),

      Hundreds more were enlightened about 'model Railroading' this past weekend here in YYC at the annual SUPERTRAIN show hosted/organized by the CMRS (volunteers all)  ....

       

      And  the previously mentioned "Cdn vendor" is NOT closing out ... just another moment recognized by them that SUPERTRAIN is a excellent opportunity to thin out some of their existing stock at special show pricing to make room for the likes of the limited CN mrkd  PIKO  locomotive (sorry i forgot which one) remaining units now exclusive from their shop,   and upcoming new product shipments from PIKO !

       

      And over at field 1,  Piko rep Daniel (?) was available to answer your questions within the PIKO g-gauge section of the HobbyTech (Canada) extensive booth space.    

      !He was only given the 3D model of the upcoming track cleaner to handle while answering any questions you may have had,  nor did the shipping dept. pack/send up the latest european steamer !

       

       

      For now (i did take a few pics but due to family matters will not process to post somewheres for at least a couple wks),

      doug

       

       

      p.s. my wallet is depressingly (?) lighter  but geeez i could not walk away from a (bulk) purchase of 4 USAT tankers ($80ea ), bulk purchase 3- AML bethgons (70ea), hobbygear details day 2 -5/$10;  aristo gon detail p/n60405 $3ea; aristo parallel track adapter p/n30375 $6.25 . . . . for peoples who eyes just popped at the low prices on something YOU would ah could ah --- tsk tsk maybe next yr at SUPERTRAIN 2019 April 13-14th same venue !!   ;)

       

      pps noted $s Canadian  !

      https://www.bankofcanada.ca/rates/exchange/currency-converter/

       

       

      BTW please don't 'whine' about distance,  I've made it to 2 ECLSTSs, 1 MWLSTS, 1 BTS from this location, till deciding travel $ best spent on hardware !!

      edit.... oh sorry those were LSTSs  not IASTSs which this show is and i would not travel out-of-country for a ASTS . . . . .  unless i had heard there was a strong chance of a potential G-gauge vendor having special show pricing as seen this yr  (and my $ was stronger than the country $ where the show was being held )   !    :)
