Back home this evening, should have pics up Monday. I was planning on staying later today and coming home tomorrow, but just after lunch the attendees dried up, and the halls quickly emptied of exhibitors, so decided to leave a day early. Lots of snow here, had to plow out the driveway, time for a nap!

What? Did your shop elves say "not my job"?
Do they not realize if you don't get home...no cookies for them?

Glad you're home.

I hope all others had a good trip home.

Looking forward to the pics.

Lazy little swarf-sweepers!   :lolb:

Maybe they are angry that I gave away so many of their cookies at the show!

Well they certainly didn't learn that from you.
And I don't believe you left them with an insufficient amount of cookies. (If you did...then you are to blame.)

Perhaps time for a different cookie? Variety...spice...and all that?

Although I shouldn't talk...I'm currently in an argument with T as to why I can't have the same cookies I've always had.  :lolb:

Don't say anything...but it's part of my plan. She makes different cookies...I want the same...I get both.  :naughty:

Can't be the variety here, they had plenty of the christmas cookies too.

I think they just got used to not having me here pestering them to make parts for the model. Elf footprints on the recliner, their magazines in a pile on the side table.... Sheesh!
 :Lol:

Okay, you guys wanted some photos to prove we were at Cabin Fever, here are a few. I did not cover the show in detail, these are just some snaps I took.

One of the guys running the hydraulic-powered excavators over at the other end of the show in the big dirtpile asked if he could get some photos of my Lombard Log Hauler on his flatbed truck. Well, SURE! Turns out it was a perfect fit, almost the same scale even.




And here is a video of it going through the different halls at the show, and TRYING to make it up the ramp onto the main dirt pile - did not make it, even with some bulldozers to help. The hauler, at 35 or 40 pounds, was too much weight. They burned up one differential trying to go up the ramp between halls, ran out a battery on another truck making it to the pile, so they had to finish up with a third truck - notice that the truck colors kept changing!















































And nice sunset leaving the show!


A very fun show, great to meet lots of you in person finally!

Many thanks for the pictures Chris. As always, lots of fine models to see. Did anyone happen to take a group shot of MEM menbers this year?

We believe you  8) it did happen. Nice set of engines on show.

I see there was a Stuart Swan on display: It gives you an idea of the size of the one I have just finished. I must try to build lighter/smaller engines in the future ::)

Hi Chris,
 Great photos! Thereís some lovely looking engines there, being a bit biased some cool locomotives! Iíve had the pleasure of driving a City of Turo for many hours.

The video of the Lombard on the move is great! The trucks just need belching smoke when the power goes on! Either that or a bunch of your elves working on the blown drive train...... dry cool

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!
