My motivation to do much of anything LEGO has waned over the past year. There are a whole myriad of reasons (see prior post) which I won’t go into at this point, maybe at some other time. However, I recently received a call from Tom Staley of Tom’s Train Station asking if we would set up the NCLTC layout at South Hills Mall for the Holiday season.
I really like these type of layout opportunities. All of the work setting up the layout can actually be enjoyed for a couple of months as opposed to a flurry of set up and tear down which typically happens at a train show. This layout will be up for at least two months – from Thanksgiving through mid to late January. Since GATS has disolved, there aren’t many show opportunities in this area so we haven’t done one in about a year. I need to get the track plan out and build something new instead of recycling the same things I have used for the last couple of shows.
