National Train Show logoother logoJuly 2008 our club (AVNS) participated in the National Train Show in Anaheim CA. This link will take you to where we have the pictures on SmugMug.

In May 2007 at the Los Angeles Live Steamers (LALS) 50th Anniversary "meet", there was a group called Antelope Valley N' Scalers which had a display of N Gauge trains and we became hooked. Though we won't add pictures of all the engines and rolling stock, we will add some as pertinent to our interests.

Circus theme: our first rolling stock by Bev Bel, ferris wheel by Heljan, carousel by Heljan, "World's Largest" rolling stock (we have 3)
Patriotic/nostalgia: Freedom Train by Con-Cor, Bicentennial Caboose by Kadee, Route 66 rolling stock by Sun'N'Sand

Blink!   1-2 Dec 2007 The first show we participated in was at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. These pictures are typical of the display put on by AVNG. Our trains are the "Freedom Train" and the circus train. After a purchase at the show, the Freedom Train grew to pulling a set of "Route 66" cars and some more red, white, and blue cars.
