Our 2013 spring event continues to expand on our tradition of excellence. First, we have oneof the most well known Santa Fe researchers, modelers and authors as our guest speaker. We also have an expert in Digitrax systems as well as other well known and experienced modelers and manufacturers to provide quality presentations. One of our special presentations will be the announcement of a brand new, revolutionary sound decoder from a new manufacturer.
Andy Sperandeo (we missed Andy last year due to an illness but are very pleased that he is willing to come this year and do his fabulous presentations) returns to the East Coast Santa Fe Modelers to share his knowledge and experience on general railroading areas as well as specific Santa Fe topics.
Norm Stenzel from Tony’s Train Exchange (is visiting with us again this year) will be sharing his knowledge and experience with Digitrax systems and the newest technologies of the QSI Titan sound decoders.
Jeff Adam from Motrak Modelswill be visiting with us this year to introduce his new Kit of the Santa Fe Systems Standards Multi room bunkhouse. Jeff will also make his carloads and structure kits available to anyone who is interested.
John Forsythe from TCS Decoders will be joining us this year and will be introducing his new SOUND DECODERS. We heard this for the first time at the Amherst Train show the end of January and we were literally ‘blown’ away with the quality of the sounds. This is something that you will not want to miss!
Jim Elster from Scenic Express will be joining us this year to introduce his line of scenic materials to our attendees including some new scenic southwest products.
In addition to our usual auction, we are also returning to one of our earlier clinic formats with simultaneous round table clinic presentations during the event. Some of the clinic titles will be:
  • TCS Decoders new “Keep-Alive” units
  • Motrak Models new Santa Fe Multi-Room Bunkhouse kit modifications
  • Digitrax systems clinic on the “LNRP” units, its function and purpose
  • Sound decoders; what is the difference?
  • A special presentation of the QSI Titan stereo sound decoder
  • Bill Van der Meer on Lettering Freight Cars

  • More to come--- (Let us know if you would like to do a clinic)
