NMRA Convention – Arrival Day

Not much going on today. We got into Atlanta about 2pm and went directly to the convention to check in. All went smoothly and everyone is friendly – many evening singing! Not sure about why, but at least they are happy. Only got to go to one session today, on using JMRI to generate switch-lists for operations on a small layout, but it was good. Also visited the silent auction room and placed a few bids. There were lots of great items, but since I have confined myself to a few well defined niches it makes resisting easier. I will find out in the morning if I was successful bidder on anything. And finally, as can be seen by the picture, I picked up my official convention car in N scale. Very nice indeed.

Well enjoy the pictures such as they are, I will be doing more tomorrow and hopefully have lots more to say and an increase in both the quality and quantity of pictures.
