    I'll be there for the public show on friday, can't attend the rest of the convention though. Maybe next year I'll register for the whole event.

    On National Train Day in Spencer, NC, I spoke with Shane Wilson, one of the founders of ScaleTrains.com in person, and he told me that they will be announcing a new N scale locomotive at the convention!

    Default TroveStarTrains @ 25th Annual National N Scale Convention

    Yes...this event is pretty epic.

    This year's National N Scale Convention in Pittsburgh, PA was well worth the 12+ hour road trip and many bathroom pit stops along the way (due to the need for large amounts of caffeine!). George, founder of the TroveStar N Scale Model Train DB, set up his T-trak module yesterday and is taking it all in and reporting back (big ScaleTrains.com announcement, new Fox Valley Models releases…and more) all the latest and greatest happenings at the Convention.

    George made it back from Pittsburgh safe and sound and with just a few n-scale items he couldn't resist while at this past Convention. He wrote Recap of 25th National N Scale Convention. Here is the first paragraph of the blog.



    Day 1 On Wednesday morning (June 21) I hopped into my pick up truck (which had a back seat full of T-Trak modules) and headed toward the 25th Annual National N Scale Convention in Pittsburgh, PA.

    With visions of N-Scale in my head and plenty of coffee, I strong-armed a 12+ hour drive from Woods Hole, MA across Pennsylvania (through four tunnels, five construction-related traffic jams and two flash floods) and arrived in Station Square in Pittsburgh. I was exhausted but excited to be back in my college town where I would experience all things n-scale for a short few days! I checked into the Sheraton hotel. There I met up with two friends (Peter and Roland) from my local Northeast NTRAK club and we headed over to the Opening Remarks event.

    Great blog! Would it be possible to make the website so that you can click on a photograph and it gets enlarged for better viewing?

    Thanks for the positive comments. Much appreciated. Great request. We will pass this along to our Development Team. Please expect to see it soon. BTW, this functionality does exist on individual item pages.
