The drive to Syracuse was a pleasant 5 plus hour trip. We arrived at the Syracuse Fairgrounds just after 3 PM. The NY SGMA group had already set up their interior loop of modules. We got to work constructing an exterior loop of modules that is an incredible 60 feet long by 36 feet wide, eight feet wider than the Altoona layout. The exterior loop includes two specially designed "ravine" scenic modules, one of which incorporates a Hellgate bridge. The exterior loop also includes the SGMA "Horseshoe Curve" module grouping featuring a track curve maximum diameter of an incredible 122 inches!
Today the show opens at 10 Am and we're ready to go! I'll try to post some pictures of today's activity at the show later on.
