Chronicles of an On30 quarry railroad

West Virginia Mini Meet

This past weekend Ted and I attended Steve Sherrill’s Mini-Meet in Ranson, West Virginia.

Steve’s Meet brings together a very diverse group of modelers with one thing in common; an interest in On30.

The On30 theme extends the focus of the Meet into the kind of inventiveness and creativity pioneered by
Gordon North.

For someone like myself who has a lot to learn about building a layout, the Meet provides an excellent opportunity to get questions answered.

A wide range of models were on display. Modelers in attendance were ready to give pointers and discuss their experiences working with everything from resin casting to electronics to 3D printing.

I came away with a new appreciation for the possibilities of On30, and enthused to try something new.

A model railroad pulls together such a broad range of disciplines that there is always more to learn.
