AsiaNRail will have an N scale modular layout at the annual Train Days event at the Los Altos History Museum, Los Altos, California (San Francisco Peninsula area), on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17,  2017, 10 am to 4 pm both days. Layout setup will be late afternoon and evening on Friday, September 15. Besides our layout, there will also be an NTRAK layout and a new N scale European modular layout, as well as layouts and displays in larger scales.

Come join us - and bring your Asian trains to run. The AsiaNRail layout is a single track branch line style layout, but, since we're also associated with the NTRAK folks, who will be set up right beside us, you can run your Shinkansen and other mainline trains there. There is even a Japanese corner module in the NTRAK layout!

Also, for participants, we get home-cooked dinner Friday night and breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, courtesy of the museum. How often do you get that at a train show!

So, come join us! If you plan to participate, please let me know so I can make a badge for you!

- Paul Ingraham, Coordinator, AsiaNRail

Hey Paul!  I had a great time last year, I'd be happy to come help out.  I should be able to make the Friday to help with set up too.

Great news, Sam! Love to have you with us again this year! I'll get you more details as Train Days approaches.

I'm off to Denver next week for the National Narrow Gauge convention. I'm going to put my Thai locomotive on display to add some color to the drab Rio Grande stuff that will no doubt dominate the model contest room.

Don't run into any navy ships on the way up here, sailor!

Hi Paul,

 

It looks like I will just be a spectator as I will have my 3 year old with me.  I exhausted my babysitter option this past weekend as I was away for work.  Sorry I won't be able to help out but will be coming over to enjoy all the festivities and trains of all sizes and especially the AsiaNrail modules and Ntrak set up.

Hi, Junior,

 

Sorry you won't be able to actually run with us. And, of course, you also don't get the free dinner Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday.

:sad1:Awww...... You will get to pay admission instead of getting in free, like the rest of us, but it should still be a great show.:notworthy: See you this weekend.

I know, that hot lunch was delicious.  I'm more than happy to pay admission and support the museum and or the clubs who are exhibiting their layouts.  Last year, I gained a greater appreciation of the amount of work behind the scenes to put on a show. See you guys Saturday.

Man I miss CA  cuisine! Back east here we get fed sloppy joes, hot dogs and donuts at shows (but the effort is greatly appreciated and my homer side enjoys it)!

Unfortunately I've come down with a high fever, so I probably won't be able to make it to the event this year.  Hope everybody has a great time, I look forward to the pictures!

An Australian Train passing through a Filipino scene module "Banaue Rice Terraces" and a Chinese diesel locomotive made CRM on Paul's AsiaNrail setup.  And a narrow gauge steam loco that actually runs on coal.

Hope you guys have had a great show and sorry to have missed this years event.  We are currently in western South Dakota camped next to old Burlington Northern ROW.  Got to a RR museum this morning and have train ride this afternoon.
