My mom and I attended the O Scale National Convention on Saturday. We visited the dealer areas and saw some portable layouts, including Tony Koester's new P48 portable layout. Later in the afternoon I presented two talks to the attendees.
|Can you image the layout needed to house this structure? Yes, O Scale is big.|

On Sunday a few of the convention attendees visited my layout since they could not make the Thursday open house. On Sunday afternoon I went to Marty McGuirk's house to work on modules with him. We got his modules almost ready to lay track.
