Altoona PA - N-Scale Weekend

Northern NJ N-TRAK (T-TRAK Division) participated in the 13th Annual "N-Scale Weekend" Model Train Show in Altoona PA. Our Dave Ferrari was the combined T-TRAK coordinator. Dave and Brian H report we had 72 modules from 11 different clubs with over 135 feet of double-track mainline run in the layout. The "Single Equivalent Unit" count plus corners equaled 122 SEUs, up from 94 last year, plus 10 corners, down from 19 last year for a total count of 132 versus 113 last year.

There were two other T-TRAK layouts by BANTRAK and Genesee & Ontario clubs along with 5 or 6 N-TRAK layouts.

There were many n-scale dealers in attendance. Money was spent, real-life trains were seen on the busy mainline (and horseshoe curve), and there was plenty of networking and learning from other clubs.

Mike Wong probably took almost 1000 photos and whittled them down to only 500+

Here's a link to the layout photos: Link to Mike Wong's Photos
