On September 9-10, 2001 the North Carolina LEGO Train Club (NCLTC) displayed our layout at the Southern Jumction Model Train Show at Dorton Arena. We were a little short handed but all worked out well in the end – our layout was a hit with the crowd, which was unfortunately a bit sparse. It turns out that the local newspaper ran the advertisements for the show on the wrong weekend and didn’t include the location. Ooops!
We had a 20’x20′ layout on display with a kids play area adjacent to the layout. The highlight of the layout was Cary Clark’s monorail spiral. There were two spirals which were connected by a 15′ span approximately 50 bricks (five tall stanchions) off the table. Cary also built us a nice mosaic that hung in front of the layout.
Check out the pictures from the show and if you are interested, all of the nitty gritty details from the planning process.
