If you want to see G scale live steam trains in action then the National (G Scale) Steamup in Sacremento (held every July) is the place for you. This year my traipse over the hill was a lot more pleasant than previous visits due to the temperature being in the low eighties versus the high nineties of bygone years.
The only other club members attending were Deb Smith and Denny Holsten. We had a great time visiting with other “steamers” and playing trains. Some of the photos are mine. The good ones were taken by Deb. Click on any pic to enlarge it.
