We arrived in Houston on Thursday around noon, the show was mostly closed down as the layout tours began at 12:30 and lasted until 5:00. Good thing there were 3 days for the tours, because there were 22 layouts one could visit, one as far a 60 miles away. Houston traffic is of course famous, and we were able to visit 4 layouts each day, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I will list each layout tour in the order we visited.
Don Bozman's The Great GREAT NORTHERN R.R.
Craig Raymond's Rio Grande Southern
Eddie Carroll's Glenbrook Valley RR
Gil Freitag's Stony Creek and Western
