Default Replacement for Marty's Event

Is there, has there been or is one planned in the midwest area?

Sad to see such a gathering event die with no replacement in the works.

RLD Hobbies Fall Open House on September 29 & 30 is a good substitute for Marty's. With 4 main line tracks and large curves, his layout provides plenty of run time. Plus free refreshments.

RLD is battery power or live steam only, no track power. Nice shop with a nice layout. Plenty of room to grow this event and he has it spring and fall each year. Food and refreshments provided, but it grows to much bigger. we all might want to chip in and bring some dishes. Would make a wonderful carry in and a nice final get together before the chill of winter falls on most of the area. Hope to see more there, we will be there on Saturday. Mike and Michele T

Guess I was spoiled. Marty was only 4 hrs away. RLD is over 10.

But the good news is no waiting for track time and plenty of sidings for parking trains.

Another plus for Marty's was I could setup to dispose of my railroad stuff. It does me no good in storage. I doubt Rob would appreciate someone competing against him on his own place.

Robby might just buy it from you, even more convenient!

Andre'.... As posted on Facebook...........

Its official from the from the boss, Carrie Hahle Cozad says we can have the open house the same weekend next year ,Sept 7, 8, 9, of 2018 for both railroads, North Table Creek Garden Railroad, South Table Creek 1" scale RR.
This way other clubs have their run days so you can visit a number of Railroads while your in the area for a 3 day event.
There is a number of railroad events going on within a 2 hr circle to play trains.
Henson Tittle even stayed late today to help water the trees on the mountain so they would look good for next year. Elsa was wanting to play in the water at the same time.
These trees was ONLY 1 gal plants when i meet the Tittles.

We went to Marty's on Saturday for just one day. Several running on the G layout, and two live steamers burning coal on the 1 inch.

Am guessing from the lack of any postings this never occurred.
