Many of our members who are attending plan on taking part in the larger "Group Layout" T-TRAK layout, but this year we will also have our own table.

At our table, we will be hosting a T-TRAK Module Contest, all to raise funds for the Pennsylvania SPCA in honor of Mike Phillips, the founder of the Altoona N-Scale Weekend. If you have any questions related to the contest, please contact Kevin Squire ( gro.kaikiw|eriuqsk#gro.kaikiw|eriuqsk ).

Fundraising & Contest Winners

As of one week after the show, we have raised $230 to benefit the SPCA!!! $150 of that was raised live at the weekend, and the remaining $80 has been from direct, online donations. The donation link will continue to be live unit Nov 30 2023, so feel free to add to that total!
