The annual 2009 Barrie Train Show was held in the Bradford Greenhouses on Highway 90 for the second year in a row. This has become the new venue for the show that is always held in mid-February.
It was sunny both days so we all got good winter suntans and the layouts on display were bathed in natural light. The show was well-attended. There were many dealers on-hand and about a dozen layouts on display, including our Nottawasaga Model Railroad Club travelling modular layout. That year I decided to try something different. My Finepix S1000 digital camera had a setting for motion pictures. I thought I'd try to see if I could capture some moving images of these fine model railroads. The images are a little jumpy because I wasn't carrying a tripod with me.
You'll see some videos of model trains in HO, N, and G scale and an O gauge 3-rail setup.
Here are some other photos of the modular layouts I took at the Barrie train show. Click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
These scenes caught my attention. I believe the first one is on the Erin Mills N scale layout while the others are on the Scarborough Modelers' travelling modular layout.
If you would like to see the clever way in which fellow club member, Bill Payne, installed lights in the Illinois Central caboose (van) above, go to marker lights installation.
There are more photos of these and other layouts that I took in 2008 at both the Brampton and Barrie train shows. You'll find them in my Photo Gallery.
