At TRAINS 2011, the Vancouver TraiNgang N-trak layout took second place in the layout category of the popular vote contest! Well done folks!

In addition to that, member Bob Berbeck also took second place in the Module section of the contest. Now d'ya s'pose that was because of the fishermen, or the trains...? Hmmm, on second thought - don't answer that!

Great layout!

At the recent Mount Cheam Lions annual Model Train and Hobby Show, out in Chillwack, BC, the Salmon Arm Model Railroad Association won the People's Choice Award and the Best Club layout award for their beautiful HO layout - again!

This magnificent layout has a wealth of detail and must surely be one of the finest examples of the art in BC.

As a tribute the fine modellers of Salmon Arm, here are a few images of their work which demonstrate their care, skill and passion for the hobby.

It's that time of year again, boys and girls... Stay safe, and don't eat too much sugar!

Oh, and watch out for trains trundling through grave yards... it might be the... "GHOST" train!

Train 'feast'!

Sep

We know these Vancouver TraiNgang folks are mad about trains, but this really takes the cake...

25th Anniversary cake

The occasion? The Vancouver TraiNgang's annual barbeque, which this year also marked the club's 25th year.

These lads may be very good with trains, but fortunately the 'gang' has friends who can bake - thanks to Joanne Peterson for baking up a storm with this delicious train feast!

Logo change!

Jul

So, the Vancouver TraiNgang has a new logo, courtesy of member Dan Janelle. This is the club's 25th Anniversary year, so we've switched logos for the time being...

Traditionalists can rest assured that the old much cherished logo will re-appear in a few months, but until, thank to Dan for his efforts to help us mark the anniversary

For members, this logo is available on various items of club gear until the end of 2011.
