Anyway, there is an internal Facebook page if you use Facebook, but the official discussions happen here.
Which 3rd party plans have you built?
Most of us would like (but don't actually have) a home layout.
Do you have Flickr or another photo gallery?
We don't really have events left for this year (maybe a small event after Thanksgiving).
But next year is looking pretty busy! You can just bring trains to run at events if you'd like. You can also contribute parts of the layout - just post on the planning thread for each individual event, once they are started.
