The "annex" Carey refers to is the "trolley barn", which is located about 100 yds to the north of the main exhibit hall.

Carey,

Those are some great locomotives that you will be running, particularly the BiPolar!   Of course, I love all things Milwaukee Road, which is why I own and run a rare set of four Jerry Brown Hiawatha cars behind either a JAD Hiawatha Atlantic steam locomotive or a Lionel Hiawatha Baltic (Hudson) steam locomotive.

PS.  Please take and post a bunch of photos and videos of the SGMA layout at Trainfest!

I will be at TrainFest 2019 on both Sat & Sun.  I will be serving as a Model Monitor at the Burlington Route Historical Society's booth at Celebrate a Railroad.  

Stop by & see

Carey,

How would you rate the experience of setting up and running a SGMA layout in the "trolley barn" verses setting up and running a SGMA layout in the main exhibit hall?
