Re: CHINESE HO EXHIBITION LAYOUT

Yes, it is a big chore to move something that big, and trouble shooting problems before the show can be unbelievably stressful. Been there, done that with modular exhibitions.

Re: Your latest acquisition

Thanks, WTD. A few more Electrotren bits. The peculiar loads make it interesting.
