So Saturday George graciously hosted and open house for 26 of the Expos fateful, Dave Kruiswyk coordinated the event, they came from as far as Seattle, it was great seeing everyone.

Well the speed that George builds is amazing he has added about 12 or 13 feet of new layout, an L that starts behind the turntable at Fillmore and swings around in front of the windows, it will be the town of Gorre.
The Brothel is actually Yehudah Heating without brick! Nice.

Anyway, always a great treat, thanks to George.

Hal, thanks so much!
For sharing these beautiful photographs of these new scenes on the Franklin & South Manchester.
Great to see that George is keeping himself busy enjoying the hobby in retirement!

Very nice, Hal. Thank you.

Looks like a very seedy part of town during the day when the feed mill is open and by night when only bars and brothels are open. Must be a wide open town if brothels can advertise openly.

Hal. Thanks for the latest update to George's layout. The photos are so sharp.
He sure has done a lot in such a short time and it all looks great.
Nice to see Trainor Industries getting a new lease of life, since being removed from the older part of the layout. I assume some other older structures were also re-purposed.

Only problem most will have, is looking at all the new structures that FSM could have produced for sale. But looks like George is really enjoying his retirement.

Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.
