Salt Lake City Trainshow 2019

Recommended Posts

Being a registered guest to the NMRA Convention in Salt Lake City this year, we get early entrance to the Trainshow on the Friday at 09.00 before the General public are allowed in at midday.

 

Apart from various manufacturers stands including a small Hornby one us a healthy trade to purchase models decoders and the like , there are some very large modular set ups. I would say not do many as previous Trainshows that we have attended before but the N scale modular setup is apparently the largest in the world and its certainly the largest we have seen. The standards of each module vary but generally most were very with a few incomplete ones. I will post batches on here then the HO module that we liked. Not many individual layous so it is a bit different to UK shows.20190712_113923.jpg.38f2e93a27bf82e6ee6f2384353a7cd2.jpg

And now for photos of the HO scale modular set up. The station is a model of the one that stood in Oakland to serve the ferryoover to San Francisco but demolished in the 1960's

That last picture is excellent, not many people would take on the task on modelling a mine under the baseboard like that.

Here's two pictures of a N scale micro layout that Walthers had created. This layout is pizza box sized.

Here's a few pictures of some very small micro layouts Rokuhan had created. Rokuhan makes Z scale trains in Japan similar to American Z Line here in The States.

I got to meet Joe Fugate(publisher and editor) of Model Railroad Hobbyist magazine. Here are some pictures of Fugate's modular switching layout. The mainline is only about 15 feet(4.572 meters) long.

Here's more pictures of Joe Fugate's modular switching layout. This Southern Pacific layout is in HO scale.

Here are some pictures of a miniature TT scale switching layout in a guitar case. This layout is about 36 inches(91.44 centimeters) long and about 18 inches(45.72 centimeters) at its widest point. The person that created this layout is originally from Romania but has lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for about 20 years. This is the only small switching layout that I saw at the show! WHY?!?

Thanks Wendell :) I suspect most ‘small layouts’ there were modules incorporated into the bigger ones.

Paul, very true especially with the T-Track modules. I am not a fan of the Timesaver layout, but I am surprised that I didn't see any of those kind of layouts at this show.

Here are pictures of some pizza box sized layouts that many of the children built in the Salt Lake City area. The Northern Utah Division of the NMRA helps many children build a N scale micro layout.

Here's some pictures of the San Francisco Bay Area Z Scale Club. They had built two layouts which are the largest Z scale layouts I've ever seen.

Here's some of the locomotives Kato is selling in HO and N scale. I had talked to one of the representatives of Kato that came all the way from their main headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.
