LDSIG Tour with Polo Shirt $40.00

LDSIG Layout Tour—Wednesday, August 2, 2017

The Layout Design Special Interest Group will conduct its traditional Wednesday LDSIG Layout Tour on Wednesday of convention week. Layouts are selected based on their Local interest and innovative design elements. They typically feature both the cream of the local layouts as well as others that have unique design interest. They will be in various stages of construction and operation, where the owners’ design techniques and ideas can best be seen. We visit the layouts in a relaxed atmosphere, where there is ample time and opportunity to ask the layout owners questions and get their point-of-view on their layout’s layout design and construction features. Most are designed (or have been re-designed) with group operation in mind. Due to the nature of the tour, you don’t have to worry about being rushed to get back on a crowded bus.

The Tour is self-guided by private or rental car. Car pooling and cost sharing are strongly encouraged, so you can discuss the unique features of these layouts as you travel. There will be carpool sign-up sheets in the SIG Room, for drivers with seats available, and for those needing rides. There will be space for comments (i.e. must return to hotel by 7 PM for a clinic; will be joining an op session at 6 PM, etc). We’ll do our best to be sure you get to see the layouts you are most interested in, and don’t want to leave any one back at the hotel. Meals will be on your own, so each car will decide when to break, what, and where to eat.

No transportation is provided by the LDSIG or the NMRA convention. Participants are expected to provide their own transportation to off-site SIG events and travel is at the participants’ own risk. As private transportation will be used, insurance is to be provided by the participants in the Tour. Neither the LDSIG, Inc. nor the NMRA will provide insurance coverage for private or rental transportation.

There are currently 21 layouts that will be open for the LDSIG Layout Tour (Multiple layouts at some locations). Some are not open for convention bus tours. Descriptions of the Tour layouts will be posted in the SIG Room and further information is available on the LDSIG website:


Addresses and an overall map will be provided at the close of the annual business meeting, which will be held at 8 AM on Wednesday August 2, 2017 in the SIG Room. IT IS STRONGLY SUGGESTED THAT YOU EITHER BRING YOUR OWN GPS UNIT FROM HOME OR SEEK A RENTAL WITH A GPS UNIT. No detailed maps will be provided. Sign-up for this extra fare event will be through pre-registration, available through on line registration, or at the convention Tour Desk.
