2019 Craftsman Courtyard - my booty
« on: October 28, 2019, 05:49:33 PM »
I had a blast at the 2019 Craftsman Courtyard held a the Timonium, MD train show. I made an effort to take off from work and head north for a weekend of toy train fun. I flew to Baltimore and took the light rail from the airport to the Timonium Fairgrounds. I stayed at the Holiday Inn only a couple of blocks from the train station.


If you've never been to the Timonium show here is what to expect, a giant model railroad flea market. They have anything from mainstream HO stuff to very old tinplate. They even have railroad ephemera (that's old real train relics).


The Craftsman Courtyard organizers did a fine job of loading up the agenda with tons of activities to keep a modeler busy all weekend. If you want to see a bunch of photos I made head to the Craftsman Courtyard Facebook page (link).


Pictured below is the bootie I cam home with:
- A Polar Lights HO scale "House on the Hill" kit. It's a re-relase of their sold out "Psycho House". Same kit in less "Hollywoodesque" packaging.
- A Carolina Craftsman its "Takoma Shops". This one is a cool looking structure I can't wait to build (build and finish are two different things for all you wisenheimers).
- Some metal stings of cool railroad men and Maste Creations HO scleras pigeons.
- Classic MDC Roundhouse vintage reefer for Heinz 57 pickles.
- A first place plaque for Rolling Stock or Vehicles (Tamiya Komatsu bulldozer in O scale)
- A first place plaque for Small Diorama (FSM George Bailey's Produce Co. in HO scale)


More to come as I have time to share it. It's been a while since I've done this and I am ready to get back in the groove.


Later.


Jaime

Jaime,

Congrats on your awards.  Are you planning a build thread on CCK's Takoma Shops?

Thank you for the well wishes. It was fun.

Congratulations on the awards Jaime!  I saw your entry close-up and it certainly was an award winning build.  Nice haul on the train goodies as well.  Hope to see you at Springfield in 2020.

Jaime, I'm glad you placed first with the Perkins diorama. I spent quite a bit of time admiring it at the show. Well deserved.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. That show was the kick in the pants I needed to get back in the saddle.
