  • 33rd National Narrow Gauge Convention – Show Your

    Work is progressing on the 33rd National Narrow Gauge Convention. This event is coming to Pasadena, CA, in 2013 on August 28 – 31 at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel. Jeff Smith, who organized the Twenty-Sixth Annual Sn3 Symposium, and Fred Hill of the Whistle Stop, will oversee this Convention.

    I will be handling the layout tours and these self-guided tours will take place throughout Southern California*.

    We will have many visitors from across the United States and several foreign countries so we want to have a good selection of narrow gauge layouts for the expected 1,500-plus attendees.

    At this time we are asking layout owners to “tentatively” commit to showing their layouts during the Convention.

    We are not asking for a firm commitment just yet, however, we need to be able to publicize a potential line-up of layouts starting July 1.

    If showing your layout is a realistic possibility, please let me know by the end of this month.

    To offer your layout or ask questions about the layout tour program, please contact me directly at:

    Should you have questions about the Convention, please contact Jeff Smith/Fred Hill at:

    Convention website: (Currently a work in progress)

    Thank you.
