On a rotating basis, four large scale railroad clubs from Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio host a Layout Bus Tour. On September 11, 2010, the Tour was hosted by the Columbus and they also invited clubs from Pittsburg, Cleveland and Detroit. Five layouts and a one hour buying spree at the incredible G Scale Junction were included.
Many thanks from ILSR to The Columbus Garden Railway Society for the excellent event they put together for us.

Although not a railroad on the Tour, our excellent bus guide from the Columbus club was Richard Abler.
He told us that plowing snow was one of his favorite operations and that he had a video on YouTube.
