After being involved with Modular Club layouts since 1989 I wanted to recognize the contributions of all the groups to the hobby . Many of the local train shows and larger WGH, Greenberg, York meet and many others have operating layouts to help introduce and keep interest in model railroading . These modelers contribute a large amount of time and effort to promote the hobby. In all the years of being part of these groups I have one special train show to highlight what I remember as the most rewarding event of all my years. In 1995 I helped with many friends and modelers to present a train show sponsored by the Lionel Operating Train Society ( LOTS). It took place in Aug. 25,26,27 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel New Brunswick NJ. The format was a little different than normal. The show opened on Friday evening 6-9 PM and Saturday & Sunday 10 - 5 PM. There were 124 modules from all the clubs local and whoever else wanted to join in. The attached video has a fairly accurate track layout of the modules, that was 26 years ago it could be off slightly. The video was made by a friend and is quite lengthy overall 120 mins. I see so many friends in there who are not with us any longer I thought this might pay some tribute to them and to the rest who are still here, check it out you might see yourself !. Thanks again to everyone who helped make the show so memorable.
