This past Tuesday, we had a Boy Scout Troop and a Cub Scout Pack visit our club.  All were interested and had a good time.  Hopefully they'll be able use the visit to obtain their model railroad pins.

At least two parents and their kids were interested in trains.  One came with a large scale Aristo-Craft FA.  It had been bought for his son by his grandmother.  The had no track and several tons of questions.  Tried to answer them but there is a lot to learn.  (BTW - my sister got me my first large scale engine - w/o track too - but that's another story).  The other showed pics of their Christmas layout and were interested in expanding.  Also, they were using tubular track and were asking where to buy it.

Here're a few pix.

Brought my theme train.

Bud, that’s great, except for the one who was in the accident.  As with any troop, we only could earn badges for topics that we had individuals to sponsor.  Thats great you have more events in the works.  I only made it to Life not Eagle.  Our long time scoutmaster retired and we were in disarray twice looking for a new scoutmaster.  Regardless, I learned many life lessons that were more valuable than a badge on a shirt pocket.

So… about a week ago I caught Bud working on the S gauge portion of our layout. He was making his measurements to be exactly perfect and not a centimeter off! The S gauge is moving along with the spur in the background almost ready to be extended.
