Whether you’re new to the hobby or have been around a while, there’s sure to be something of interest to you.
Want to learn about how other people are building their layouts? We’ve got Kent Hurley talking about the planning for his new layout and Gary Davidson on how he’s building his layout. John Breau will go into the research he did on the prototype for his layout, and Kevin Leyerle will let us know his plans for a new layout in O scale.
Are you more interested in operations? We’ve got Mark Juett on setting up for operations and Bret Overholtzer on operations for a smaller layout. Maybe structures are your thing. If so, don’t miss Lind Wickersham on building detailed structures. Marty Vaughn will help you add figures to your layout with how to make them and paint them.
Watch for the Make-and Take clinic offered on Thursday evening. You will be able to build your own scratch-built bridge with Miles Hale and Larry Alfred. This will be HO only and limited space will be available, so if you are interested, sign up early. There will be a $5 charge to cover materials.
And there’s plenty more: Steve Priest will discuss rebuilding the Santa Fe Bicentennial Locomotive 5704, Joe Fugate is up for track cleaning, Martin Wade will discuss cleaning brass, and Ray Brown will handle making trees. You’ll definitely want to hear from Chuck Hitchcock about his Ottawa Junction Railway and Dave Bogard will handle scenery.
More detailed clinic descriptions and schedules will be available later, be sure to check back. Join us in Kansas City for some really great clinics plus all the other convention activities. It’s a good time to add to your knowledge, greet old friends, and make some new ones. See you there!
