Upland Modular Show Report

June 15, 2014 – Thank you to everyone who was able to help make this show a success. We had a great crowd and lots of compliments. I am beginning to recognize some of the locals that come around every year and several of them thanked us for being there. For some it seems to be the highlight of the festival.

One older lady I was talking to asked if we had anything running in CSX and all I had was a hopper car. I promised her that we would have a CSX locomotive running next year. She told me she has a relative she sends pictures to of CSX. Once again thanks a bunch and hope to see as many of you as possible at the church set up in July.

Sad News from Uno

Submitted on 2014/06/10 at 5:28 pm – You can add me to “The Gardens We Have Lost”. During the past few weeks I have totally dismantled my layout and we are in the process of returning that area to a small flower garden. The train layout was too much for me to maintain and this took the fun out of it. Uno Magnuson
