Grand Scale Mogul from scratch

Here is link to my Mogul running at the Grand Scale Convention.
I parted way with it several years ago but it's current home is a park in Shanghai, China.

The Grand scale convention was held in 2007 at the late John Woods RR. in MO. An absolute fantastic railroad. Over 8 miles of 15" ga. track and an 850 ft. curved tunnel. You better have a good headlight because there is no light at the end of the tunnel. There is a support group that still maintains the RR and hold a meet once a year by invitation only.

Hi John

Do you know if this group might be interested in hosting a national Grand Scale meet in 2017? Or if some other RR might be interested?? Something similar to Train Mountains Triannual...

To get the answer to that question, Glenn, you will need to go to our website at http://www.arborwayrailroad.com and use the contact us information to contact the Superintendent of the ATTNW. He would be able to tell you.

I will say, though, that the ATTNW's annual Friends Meets sometimes resemble conventions... Usually a large gathering of friends from near and far, but just two years ago we had two 15" gauge 2 axle diesels visit us from California. Carey Williams occasionally brings his Cagney. Wasatch brought a few Cagneys from Cheyenne, WY a few years ago, also.

Good times in the Ozark mountains!
