Allen Models will be there. Also we took on the West Cost Supplier of EP Plastic (Accutie System) Two Booth along with the owners of Accutie System

We will be stocking ties and rail soon, Switches, screws, tie plates and the new u-bolt design bolting system that replaces the four bolt for the rail Joiner. Special ties for double rail across bridges and trestles. All pre drill on angles for the rail to be place in one spot, this make the rail in gauge with out using track gauges to assemble rail.
Currently installing a complete railroad in the southern Calif. area. Its a dream to use this system. Just screw rail to ties that are made with tie plate already on the tie. Screw rail on and go. Two man team make 10 foot panels in 7 1/2 min. Switches are pre drill ties that are number and rail pre drill for the ties. Follow instructions and make a switch in 90 mins or less. This plastic is design for 50 year life. No more loss screws from wood rotting away. Even trex wood will bend twist and screws loosen up in time. Track screws are 5/16 hex with a Philips head slot also. Washer on head of stainless steal screw are big and solid. Battery live on driving them in is a lot longer.
We put together 8 switches and 600 ft of track together in two half days with 5 people. I am so impress with this product. For new layouts and club tracks we will give a case of ties to try for free. Just try them and the cost is less than wood in most case's. .98 cent per tie. But for those out there we are expecting the cost to go up soon. So get on board now with intro prices.

I have always wanted to go there. My first invite was 22 years ago. Unfortunately Banning Locomotive Works does not have any fuel friendly locomotives to run. I thought of going as a vendor but having coal fired locomotives, we are prohibited to run. Maybe one of these days we will have an eco friendly loco lol.

Steve,

Just so I understand........you took over the Accutie System from Bill Zingheim? He WAS my vendor for this system. I used this for my short little layout around my home here in Burbank, CA. This is good news for all of us here in So. California. Vendor is now closer to us! I'm anxious to hear about the "switch building" concept you mentioned and the new ties for guard rails on bridges and trestles.

what better way to show off your little locomotive, with a quick swap propane burner to grates :)
If it is not live steam. its not worth it.
