Going to Supertrain in Calgary, April 18-19
Over the past 20 or so years, Canada has changed dramatically.
Economically, culturally and politically, power and influence has shifted away from central Canada to the West, as Darrel Bricker and John Ibbitson detailed in their book The Big Shift.
It has shifted in another way, too--in model railroading.
For a long time, the biggest model railroad show in Canada was in Toronto. Today, that honour goes to Supertrain in Calgary.
The 2015 Supertrain is this weekend, April 18-19, and--luckily for me--business takes me to Alberta this week so, I get to go. It's the third time I have been able to attend.
I'm looking forward to it.
