Bach Man,

Will Bachmann Industries be represented (have a booth/display) at the SELSTS this coming May?

Oops! That should be the Southeast Garden Railroad Show.

Hi, Jon!
I don't believe so, but I'll be there in spirit!
We are doing fewer shows this year.
Have fun without me!

nice  Undecided


Looked over the Calendar to the Left and didn't see Bachmann attending the ECLSTS? 
but did notice they'd be at the TCA show in York mid April?

Was Bachmann planning to attend the SELSTS before it was canceled?

Hello guys,
 Hope everyone, including Mr. Bachmann, will come to the Southeast Garden Railroad Show May 1-2 in Dalton, Georgia. It is a perfect vacation location with Chattanooga, Atlanta, Nashville, and Great Smokey Mountains all within a three hour drive of the show site! Civil War history abounds in the area. Railroad museums are in Chattanooga and Kennesaw, as well as Duluth and train ride in Blue Ridge. The Georgia Garden Railway Society is hosting a banquet (with door-prizes) on Friday night and a self guided layout tour on Sunday, May 3. Clinics are planned by Buddy Rickhard, Mark Fuhrman, Bob Keely, Do-it-yourself Dave Cummins, and others. 22 vendors have signed up to attend. This is basically a mini-convention without all the cost and IT IS THE ONLY LARGE SCALE TRAIN SHOW IN THE SOUTHEAST USA! Check out www.segrs.com for complete details.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

Dear All,
I'd love to attend all the shows, but we've cut back the schedule this year.
Sorry!

Ted, I will be driving over from Mississippi for the show on Thursday. Dalton is actually an hour shorter than Perry. See you there.

Ron (and others coming to the show),
 Please stop by the Georgia Garden Railway Society booth and say 'hello'. I'll be around most of the time (or at least around the show somewhere). Don't forget the banquet and layout tours!
Happy Rails To You,

Operating Sessions for Garden Railroads
9:30
It's fun to watch the trains go round and round, but sometime you want to do more. Donald Nute and his wife Jane have been running regular operating sessions on their Lake Town & Shire Railroad (http://laketownandshire.net) for the past four years. They have experimented with several systems. The system that has become their standard uses magnets, colored washers, and a few laminated crew cards. It's simple enough for seven year old operators, but keeps adults interested. A Digital Command Control system makes operating the trains simple. Don retired from the University of Georgia where he was Director of the Artificial Intelligence Center. He and Jane have been building their garden railroad for the past ten years.

The Georgia Garden Railway Society proudly presents the 2009 Layout Tour. This will be the Sunday after the show, so come to the show and stay over one day to take the tour. We have 7 wonderful layouts for you to enjoy. Two indoor and five outdoor. Everything from Colorado narrow gauge to modern diesel trains will be showcased in this event. One indoor layout has a snow scene while the other has many highly detailed dioramas. There are a couple of water features on some layouts and some tunnels and bridges, especially one huge steel bridge across a real stream Directions will be at the Georgia Garden Railroad Societyís booth at the show, or by e-mail from alanmole@bellsouth.net Be sure to include the driverís name on the e-mail so they can be added to the visitor list at the Mole Valley Railroad.

All,

I attended the SEGRS this past weekend in Dalton.  What a BLAST.  Our club, the Emerald Coast Garden Railway Club joined forces with the Florida Garden Railway Society, Tampa Bay Division, to layout over 1300 feet of track in multiple loops.  Trains never stopped running, and some real good bargains were to be had. As far as I am concerned, the event was a resounding success.  I also believe that the facility has been retained for next year at the same time (rumor only).
