Continuing on, here is Jim McHenry and Fred Holzapfel at the registration desk.  I believe about 75 paid attendees were there, plus several manufacturers.



Mike and Korey Pyne of Wild West Scale Model Builders were there with a large display of their structure kits.  They manufacture in Z, HO, S, and O, but of course brought S scale kits to the show.



The Franke Furniture kit is at left, and their newest kit, the Kokomo Cabin, is at right.



A ton of building kits!



Another photo of the Kokomo cabin (which I'll be buying soon for my HO layout), and samples of their soon-to-be-released water based wood stains (not paint).  I received some trial samples to try out for Mike.



Next, I visited with Precision Vintage Classics, a company I had not come across before.  Paul Vaughn had an eclectic collection of tools, rolling stock, and turnout controls.  He does not have a website, but is at 9938 257th st. Ct. E., Graham, WA  98338.



Precision was selling these modified ore cars in S narrow gauge - it's a Roundhouse gravel car originally built in HO, modified, including an option for operating dump doors.



Operating dump doors - neat!



Precision has this turnout control, which I am going to try on the layout.  The cost is low, and it's a non-electric manual, under-the-benchwork throw.  It has lots of adjustment built into it.



An overall view of the manufacturer's room.



On Friday night, I gave clinic on the history of the Gilpin Tram - photo taken by Don Heimburger.
