It was a great gathering and the models on display were superb: great
passenger cars, freight cars plus both steam-diesel-turbines and some
buildings and trestles. I think next year I will bring my earliest resin
kit to show some improvement in my skills since 1986. Monty Switzer used
the dark and light paint line technique over the rivet lines on boxcars to
great advantage. Bruce Smith had only the second largest collection of
belpaire boilers on display! The presentations had a broad scope and Bill
Darnaby's wonderful presentation on scenery left the ice modeling to Mike
Brock. A wonderful way to avoid the icy jail cell. Okay, i was in my
shorts all the time anyway and missed any and all ice buildups.
Wonderful job, one and all....yes, Greg Martin, my zona saw is thawing out
as i type it easier to saw frozen plastic or do i keep the saw
frozen and thaw out the plastic for the shake n take clinic? Steve Orth's
clinic on upgrading Atheran UP 4-8-4s covered so many detail changes, i
could have sworn he did 3 of those big FEFs.

south of Mike Brock (we hit 80 here on Friday, thereby speeding the thaw out
to Saturday)

Just wanted to thank Mike, Jeff and the entire crew of high-paid staff that
pulled off another great Prototype Rails meet. Another great mix of clinics,
displays and camaraderie!

If anybody wants to help out next year I understand that Mike is looking for
a new Weather Coordinator, for some reason he seemed to think that it was
one aspect which could have been improved this year.... !
