Standard Gauge Model AssociationMembers of the Standard Gauge Module Association returned to exhibit at the Syracuse Train Fair on November 6 & 7, 2010. It was the group's third time presenting an operating Standard Gauge layout at the event. However, there were a number of firsts at this event: the first elevated layout loop, the first separate kid's layout with candy train, and Bob Thon got to see both of the Mc Keen car sets that he started building 25 years ago together at one venue . The perimeter of the SGMA layout measured 20' x 32' and featured a considerable number of inside modules used for display of accessories and trains.
