The 16th Annual Hamilton & District Layout Tour - This Saturday!
The Hamilton-centred HO Model Engineers Society (HOMES) is holding their annual layout tour as follows:
Saturday, November 5, 2016, from 9am to 5pm.
They will have 24 home and club layouts in N, HO, and O scales, standard and narrow gauge, from Burlington to Beamsville, plus Hamilton itself. Six of these layouts have never been in the tour before, and three others haven’t been on for a while.
One of the layouts on the tour should not be missed. It is Lex Parker's Denver & Rio Grande Western layout. It is incredibly well done. Above and below are a few images of the layout which don't do it justice.
A special addition will be the Burlington Junction Station (Freeman Station), which is undergoing renovations and building a G-scale historical diorama as part of its display.
Admission to the tour is $5 per person, and the Guide Book is your ticket.
