1  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: 2018 National Garden Railroad Convention on: January 08, 2018, 08:15:58 PM
NEWS FLASH! Tennessee Valley Railroad has released their 2018 schedule. They have a double header steam trip on Saturday, June 2 (Saturday before the NGRC starts). There are a few tickets left and it will sell out, so come to the convention early, ride the steam train on Saturday, layout pretour (and/or Atlanta Braves baseball game that day)on Sunday, then the train rides (different from the Saturday ride) Monday & Tuesday! Lots of trains and lots of fun! Order Saturday tickets direct from the railroad.

Just an update on the 2018 convention in Atlanta this June. See ad on page 59 in the February Garden Railways magazine. Pre-tours on June 3, with layouts in Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina for those driving down the major interstate highways and some in Georgia for those coming into town early. The Monday & Tuesday special train rides are about 1/3 sold out as of January 1 (we expect registrations to pick up over the next month or so) so don't be left out, reserve your seats on the train soon. Dealer hall is about 60% full at this time as well. Approximately 30 garden railroads will be open for tours Wednesday through Saturday (self drive or you can ride a bus to many of these) and about 20 more open for pre/post tours on Sunday before and after the event. Atlanta Braves have a home game on Sunday, June 3 and they play just across the interstate (with pedestrian bridge) from the convention center. There are only a few of the special Hartland 'General' show locomotives left, so get one of those in the next few days if you want one. June will be a good time to be in Atlanta if you enjoy the hobby of garden railroading! See for full registration information.
Happy Rails To You,

 I'll gladly take correct Rio Grande (or even better, multiple Rio Grande) factory paint schemes on any Bachmann loco!
Happy Rails To You,

 I have done a few repaints in the past, but I prefer factory paint. Why Bachmann has never done the Flying Grande or the Moffit Tunnel/Scenic Line heralds I can't understand.
Happy Rails To You,

Mr. Bachmann,
 See,339976 for photo of what might make a good paint scheme for the 'Annie'. This is sister locomotive to #168 that is currently being restored to operation by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. Either of these road numbers, or both, would be a welcome addition, especially since the #168 is coming back into service and could prove a popular model.
Happy Rails To You,
P.S.-still waiting and eagerly anticipating 'Annie' repaints with the 'Flying Grande' and 'Moffit Tunnel' heralds!

 Purchase an LGB knuckle couple for the first car behind your locomotive(not the tender). LGB knuckle couplers will mate with the C-19's Bachmann coupler. You can leave hook & loop on the remaining cars.
