|Hostler Model Railroad show 2014 - Tuesday, February 11, 2014|
The yearly Hostler show will be on the 28th of February and March 1st and 2nd at the historical Union Station in Ogden, Utah. The show this year opens on Friday (2/28) 4:00PM to 9:00PM, and on Saturday from 9:00AM to 5:30PM, and on Sunday from 9:30AM to 3:30PM. UGRS will be on the second floor in the south end of the station (where we were last year). Second floor makes it a challenge for set-up and teardown, but it’s the only place they can put us that we can set-up and show-off our whole layout. This is Utah’s biggest train show and gives us lots of exposure. So be sure to bring your personnel trains, buildings, die cast models, and any other items to put on the modules that would be of interest to the public.
Also note that we will not be meeting on the third Saturday this month (February) due to the timing of this show. read more ...
Thanksgiving Point Show, January 17th-18th 2014 - Wednesday, January 08, 2014
We are getting close to the 2014 OT&W Model Train show to be held at Thanksgiving Point Friday January 17th (3:00 PM to 9:00 PM and Saturday 18th (10:00 AM to 6:00 PM) in the Red Show Barn at Thanksgiving Point. We will be setting-up on the west side of the building, on the stage (in front). Set-up will begin by 12 noon on Friday with trains ready to run by 3:00 PM. Teardown will start at 6:00 PM on Saturday (as long as it takes, usually about an hour). Don’t forget to bring your favorite locomotives, rolling stock, buildings, and die cast models to show off to the public. This is a popular show with a lot of excited kids to see the big trains in UGRS, and lots of people interested getting into the hobby of garden railroading themselves. Hope you can all come even if it’s just for an hour or two. Please RSVP back to me so I can determine who I can count on for set-up, operation and teardown. (See the attached flyer.) read more ...
