Crockett NTrak Meet-up

Recommended Posts

Hello Bay Area, Sonoma, Solano and Sacramento County Modelers, 

 

We will be having a meet-up at the Bay Area NTrak Club in Crockett.  Bring some trains to run or just come and hang out and watch both model and real trains.  The depot has a window that looks out to the Union Pacific tracks right behind the building - we are always treated to a couple of Amtrak Capitol trains, The California Zephyr and freight trains.  Bob and the other members are very welcoming and have great stories.  Also, they don't judge us with the type of trains we run. :)

 

Date: November 4, 2017

Time: 10 am - 12 pm

Location:  Bay Area NTrak Club - Old SP Depot 

                   900 Loring Ave., Crockett CA

We had 3 JNS Forum members attend - Serotta1972 (Junior), Kiha66 (Sam) and Locidm (Ian) and we were able to run a couple of trains.  Ian's 885 was flying around the layout and so nice to be able to run the longer trains especially Sam's container train.

Another nice train running meetup and this time with donuts. Sam brought his Steam Locos and did a photo shoot on the roundhouse.  I hope he got some nice pictures because you can't see them in my pictures.  My M250 Super Rail Cargo felt right at home.

Thanks for sharing the pictures Junior!  The black locomotives really do blend in to the shadows.

A great meet-up with 4 people from the forum attending: Brad (nscalestation), Paul (Railtunes), Sam (Kiha66) and myself (Serotta1972).  A great selection of trains between the 4 of us and we took over and used all 3 lines.  Paul had some really cool Asian non Japanese trains, Brad had some classic Japanese trains and Sam had the SP Daylight in all its glory.  I was able to run my Kiha 40 - I had fun just watching all the other trains and just conversing with everyone.  We had lunch after and continued our nice conversations about trains and more trains.   I got to run my train on the blue line and it goes through a nice scenic section behind the rock tunnels.IMG_0950.thumb.jpg.813d90913f0bd2e2ae91c6ffb2159104.jpgIMG_0951.thumb.jpg.d2094e012c22342aa1518d429da93ce6.jpgIMG_0953.thumb.jpg.3eff484e021bca4ad22a10fa6add92b1.jpg

I didn't get to run my other trains but I was happy just watching everyone else's trains and also the real trains passing by just outside the window.
