I've got a few G scale (garden gauge) trains. It's funny, a few of us played with them in the dark after everyone else left. I have a couple LGB starter kits and a few more bits of rolling stock. I bought a couple Bachmans, but they are in rough shape. But my two best engines are a 150 ton 3 truck Shay, and a F7A&B unit with sound - that's what we were driving around in the dark. Pretty fun.

The idea has always been to set up something outside, which is what this stuff is meant for. Full brass track, works well. I put this set up in the front garden fro this year, but I have more track and would love to set something up in the back yard one day. It's coming, but the shop first.

510 Day 2018

Well, it's that time again - 510 Day is fast approaching and I look forward to hosting this annual enthusiast drop in event open to all Datsun owners.

I'll supply a case of burgers and buns (or likely 3 cases because we nearly ran out last year).

Bring a chair and drink and your Datsun, and you'll be set.

Drop me a PM if your attending so I can gauge interest - and the quantity food!

I look forward to seeing you attend.

I will try to be there, likely shakedown drive for sure. Still have to purge methanol system, I hate that job. Got my O2 sensor in this morning. Lets hope the weather co-operates.

Just a reminder to all Vancouver BC area guys - 510 Day at my place coming up this week. Picking up the burgers and fixings this weekend.

It's been quite the show this past couple of years, hope you can make it out.

And hoping the weather will be good as well.

Awesome.

Weather looks not so good, but it won’t burst my bubble - we’ll hide under cover if the Pacific NW gives us any moisture.

It’s a go, rain or shine. There’s pleanty of space in the shop, and I’ll throw up a 10x10 over the BBQ if need be.

But since 510 Day happens on the back end of the system, I’m hoping for a drying trend through the day with a good evening as Friday is forcast sunny.

Can we bring anything..bag of chips...

I will be there, either in 510 or G35. Taking 510 over to Andy's this morning to check out possible bad O2 sensor. If it gives one weird code again it is out of there!

fudge, I wont be able to make it. on Monday I got off lucky with only minor injury. when a lose excavator bucket shifted squishing my left foot between a second bucket ..... my foot felt like a marinating bag of chicken wings as i extracted it and rolled on the ground in pain. but the x rays show no breaks.
... and of course all my cars are standard.

I could use some help I was to bring a seat and seat belt for john and grab a set of bumpers from norm.
