December 6, 2010 | Comments Off on HUB Division Train Show December 2010

NMRA HUB Division held their Fall Show in Marlborough, MA this weekend. The Royal Plaza Trade Center which hosts the event is a great location for a train show. They have good lighting and taking pictures or videotaping is easier as compared to last month’s Wilmington Show.

There were a large number of HO scale layouts. Other gauges were On30, N and S.

European Train Enthusiast‘s HO layout was were i was hung out most of the time. (I do have a weakness for Marklin locomotives and rolling stock) Good lighting is a must to differentiate between a good and a great layout. ETE’s layout had their own lighting system as part of their module.

The HO layouts of Amherst Railway Society, Cape Cod Model Railroad Club and the NMRA HUB Division had a good mix of industrial and rural scenes. Each layout had their own version of a “really-long” train which was a hit with the kids.

Technical Notes: The video was taken with a Kodak Zi8. I had to dub the sounds from some clips as people laughing/talking were louder than the train sounds. I used Trainz Simulator loco and track sounds to overwrite the annoying chatter that one picks up during recording at train shows
