Bump--event is this afternoon. We have a full hour planned, with Roger Carp talking about Lionel items from the 1960s, a DCC system from PIKO America, Classic Trains 20th anniversary, and so much more!

Thanks Rene,
 I liked the Menards Schneider Terminal stream but I agree as you said a bit to long winded. Also, for those who don’t know, that building is referred to as a Cross Dock in logistics. Material is received on one side in bulk, (say from train cars in this case) then broken down into smaller loads of multiple product to be delivered to point of use by truck. FYI.  I guess the boys did not know that information. It would make for a great piece on any layout with a freight yard.
Looking foward to the next event.

Thanks for the comments! It's a work in progress (for instance, the Menards structure segment was too long).

I just finished watching it for the first time since I was at work when it was live-streaming. I enjoyed it. If more are produced, I will be sure to watch those too.

Thanks Rene!  I'll enjoy watching it again, and I'm sure others will enjoy seeing it for the first time!

Thanks Rene!

The "Product Palooza" is a great idea, I'd just hate to see it die out due to poor "time-slotting."  

The fact there's only been two respondants on this thread, myself and "Penny Trains" should tell them something.

Thanks Rene!  For your efforts you folks should have a much bigger audience than retirees and their parents!  Wink

Just a suggestion.  Is there any way possible you can run "Product Palooza" in "Prime Time," for lack of a better phrase?  Say starting at 6:00 PM EST?  Or barring that, re-running it at a later time?  I think you'd get a bigger audience.

I didn't have a problem catching it as I'm retired and my time's my own, but everyone else isn't in that category.

 

I'll pass on your comments. They are experimenting with different times and locations. It will be available to watch (either Facebook or otherwise) later.

I just finished watching the "Product Palooza."  Very enjoyable!  And I hope to see some more.

By the way, after looking at Bob Keller, Hal Miller, and Steve Sweeney, I think I'm gonna grow a beard so maybe I can be on the "Product Palooza" too someday!  Wink
