Near Lafayette
« on: February 29, 2012, 05:13:23 pm »
 Is there anyone in or near Lafayette doing 1/8th scale?

How many live steamers are there in this group?

Thanks, Mark

Mark, Dick Fontaine and some of his friends over around Attica are doing 1/8 (sort of).  Fontaine is into 2' gauge trench engines, so his figures out to be 3 3/4" to the foot, but it's all on 7 1/2" gauge track.  / Ron

The track they have is on a piece of property near Rainsville.  It is a private park that has other steam displays and is open to the public a few times a year.

Thanks Pete !
My Wife and I joined that group last fall.
I was hoping there were others close by.
