S Fest 2020 Milwaukee, WI : November 6-8

The Badgerland S Gaugers will be hosting the 2020 "S" Fest in Milwaukee, WI on Nov. 6-8. The Fest cars, for the gathering of "S" gauge fans, will be Milwaukee Road 2 bay offset hoppers built by American Models in the Hiawatha decor. These cars have been beautifully decorated by American Models and are already in the possession of the Badgerland club, there will be no 2+ year waiting period this time. I am attaching the promotional sheet. I need to mention the rendition of the cars on these sheets do not do them justice, they are truly  some of the most attractive cars I have seen. So please do come to join us for this years "S" Fest.

I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the cars for the Fest as boxed.

These cars are supplied with coal loads.

Sorry guys and thank you for the heads up. I assumed they went on the original post but you know what happens when you assume.

Bob,

You can go to the Badgerland S Gaugers website and print out the registration/car order form. You will need to register for the S Fest and order the cars. No cars will be shipped though before the November event.

Ray

My mistake, I will get info for registration to the forum as soon as it goes up, I apologise for the bubu!   Should be there in a day or two.

Hello Guys and Gals,

I am sorry that it has taken a few days to get this information to you but I guess the virus is slowing everything down some. I am posting here the link to the site with all the info for the S Fest for 2020. Scrolling down to the bottom you will find PDFs for the registration and car order forms, also for other pertinent information. Just a reminder, registration for S Fest is required to order the cars.

Thanks folks for being patient with us.

Good morning folks,

I thought I would add some more pictures of the 2020 S Fest cars, but now unboxed. The pics of the cars in the boxes really don't do them justice.   These were taken by American Models at the time of manufacturing. Thanks to Ron and the crew.

With 95+% of my trains and layout in climate controlled storage in anticipation of a move to a house that may never come, I told myself I don't need any more trains.  But those cars are drop dead gorgeous!  I just have to justify getting them, and even harder, finding a place for them now that the house is in "show potential buyers" condition (not that it will sell in today's market). 

I've always thought the American Models makes great looking stuff.  Especially for the price.  BTW, Ron is a member of the Southeastern Michigan S Gaugers, and once hosted a club meeting at his factory.  It was like being the proverbial kid in a candy store.   Photos upon request.

Stay safe, guys,
