There are a few photos on Trainboard but that's all I've seen.http://www.trainboard.com/highball/index.php?threads/nmra-national-train-show-2015-portland-aug-27-30.84630/

soccrdad30 - Tue 1 Sep - 21:07

I have not seen any photos either. :(

southernnscale - Tue 1 Sep - 19:27

Yes! that is good! Has any one seen any photo's from the 2015 NTS. I have been looking but have only seen the Video

rvn2001 - Tue 1 Sep - 03:48

At least a Z scale module won 1st place......again!

GNFan - Mon 31 Aug - 20:37

If the criteria was "looks like the location depicted", several NMRA members & several more members of the general public told me Loren's modules look like southern Oregon. Didn't count, I guess. :-{

southernnscale - Mon 31 Aug - 00:55

Thanks! I thought he would have to as much work he had put into it. I thought it was very professionally designed. Also highly detailed! :D

Alaska Railroader - Sat 29 Aug - 21:58

If I had any I would have bet money that Loren would have won for best layout. Didn't. One Z module placed. Brad Saunders from CZM got 1st place for his module.

Alaska Railroader - Sat 29 Aug - 21:57

Even tho I'm not there I hear from a couple guys, they're so busy that it's all hands on deck. Ends tomorrow so maybe you'll start seeing photos on Monday.

southernnscale - Sat 29 Aug - 21:46

Were are the NTS photo been waiting and waiting I see the model railroad didn't say much about Z again! I hope all when well for every one in Portland! I really wish I could have went! :(
