    Default Heads up on Mainline Open House Sept 16-17 South PA/Maryland/WV

    Mainline Hobby Supply will once again be hosting their Open House and Layout tours this year during the weekend of Sept 16-17. The store will have an extra 10% all items (excluding consignments). At the store, you can pick up the self guided Layout Tour booklet and travel to area private home and model railroad club layouts across southern PA, Maryland and West Virginia. If it is similar to years past, should be 20-25 layouts to view, though I know at least 3 won't be on this year.

    Within 2 weeks before the open house ! Sounds like +/-25 layouts on tour this year across Saturday and Sunday. Layouts vary from N scale to G scale outdoor (weather dependent)

    Getting down to the wire now. Layout owners are finishing up new scenery and track work. Putting the last touches on a new building they've done since last year. And cleaning up the airbrush from doing some weathering work. Consists and manifests are being built and tested out. Tracks are being cleaned and electrical minions are being chased away. Sounds like 25 layouts on tour this year, including N, HO, S, O (different versions), and G scale. Some club layouts but most are private residential layouts. Again, 10% off at the store all weekend. Store is well stocked for all your modeling needs, and if they don't have it, they can get it quickly. Stop by and pick up your guide book, pick up some items for your own layout or club, and visit others for great ideas, meeting old and new friends and motivation to get back to your own train empire.
