Been doing Indy several years now, great show!  Seems better every year.  Looking forward to the clinics.  Close to the airport, safe free parking, nice hotel, friendly crowd.  

Will Norm Pullen and Bill Davis  be their with their 30+ tables of deals?

Last year I got several NOS Sunset engines  I missed when first offered.

Looking forward to it, Dan.

Pulling several items out of my own inventory, brass and otherwise, structures, fully completed scenes, and all sorts of the usual "stuff" along with the all of the back issues and such from O Scale Trains.

Hello all

Thank you Dan for sponsoring the show 

Looking forward to my first Indy show. Working  on some of the bricks to move for outside 3rd rail demonstrations at the show . Stop by and marvel at 80 year old O scale ...or laugh your choice.

Here we have a mid 30's Alexander dual motor box cab .... one motor is slightly  faster than the other fine once up to speed, but for going back and forth on 6' of track not so much ...why yes that is the reverse knob sticking through the roof just like the prototype .

See you in Indy, bring  your vintage O scale .

Cheers Carey

I may try to go being only 50 miles North of Indy.  How likely is it that there will be some junk boxes there?

 

Also, anyone with some Central Locomotive Works or old Saginaw parts, please bring em... especially a frame for the PRR H10 2-8-0!

Dennis Holler If its old and broke, I like it

I will be bringing a number of better traction items and kits from my own estate.......

Ok, either my watch has stopped or I'm.................

The CLW H-10 frame must be assembled from steel side frames and various cross members.  Do you have the axle bearings and dummy spring hangers that fit this frame?  If not you might be better to find a complete kit on ebay.  They show up from time to time.  Finding "Section1" for this kit by itself may be difficult.

I have sections 3 & 4 and am missing the first two sections, so basically frame drivers, cylinders, side rods, motor etc.  I do keep an eye out on the bay for parts, but that is hit or miss you know.  I understand it is probably more likely that I would find a complete engine than just the drivetrain, but hey the fun is in the journey right?    If I understand correctly, the early version (Saginaw and maybe the early CLW) had cast bronze frames and the later ones were fabricated.  My tender is the later version with the brass sheet sides versus the early one with the cast tender.  Probably lots of ways to go.

I will be there representing Sunset Models / 3rd Rail / Golden Gate Depot and I have several new in box Sunset diesels at a good price with factory guarantee including a PRR FP7 dark green single stripe A unit and an A-B set of Great Northern FT units.

We will be running trains Friday night till 9 and Saturday 10-5 for those of you that would like to visit our 3-Rail Layout. We are in Atlanta, Indiana - about 20 minutes north of Carmel. 

Take I-465 North and get off at US31 - then US31 North to 296th Street and turn right - Lisa's Pie Shop is on the corner. Follow 296th Street East and it takes you into Atlanta. Right on Broadway and Right on Main. 

Saturday and Sunday is the New Earth Festival in Atlanta and there will be @600 vendors; artists and food folks here - your wife might have a good time.
