Woodie:

Seeing your layout would be a good incentive to attend next year's Sn3 Symposium. I am sure they would let you participate. After all, the Symposium has low standards, as evidenced by them allowing me, an HOn30 modeler AND 2-foot modeler to participate! :)

Robert Sherwood of Western Car Shops also was at the Symposium with his line of products.




Another company called PBL also apparently also sells a little bit of Sn3 products, too.  This is the feeding frenzy in action on the last day.

Some of the local narrow guagers - Scott McLeod, Joe Herrick, and Jim McHenry.


That's Pat Student sitting down, probably contemplating the goodies PBL brought.  Both Jim and Keren Booth were there.




Some last-minute instructions as Randy Lee gives a demonstration of servo-powered 3-way turnout control.


Some last-minute discussions on Saturday night.

Pete Nelson presented the contest awards, but you'll have to go to the Symposium web site to see the results.  Also, the Dallas group gave an update on what to expect in next year's Symposium (I think they're doing it in February).  People also spoke for future Symposiums, too.  I think the next four years of Symposiums will be:

2014 - Dallas
2015 - Seattle
2016 - Clearwater, Florida
2017 - St. Louis

So, things were all set, and the group officially ended the Symposium.  After such a wearying event, most everyone adjourned to the hotel bar to get some well-deserved relaxation and continue dispensing pearls of wisdom.



This was a great event, and I had a great time.  I think I will be attending more of these Symposiums in future years.
