Yeah, I'm going Saturday Morning. I have other stuff to do in the afternoon.
That's easy for me to do since I live in Longview. Do you need directions?

Well, before you get into town, you need to take Spur 502 to the right (Judson Rd.) off US 259.
Then, after about 3 or 4 miles, take Spur 63 to the right.
This will take you through a big portion of town. After several miles, you will cross US Hwy 80 (Marshall Ave.), then under the RR tracks.
Not much further, you will merge with State Hwy 31.
Stay in the right hand lane. On the left you'll see a movie theater and a VW dealership. You'll turn right on Jaycee Rd. across from the VW place.
The fair grounds are on the right after about 1000 yards.

I know, alot of right hand turns, but I promise you won't be going in circles.

Was the original question referring to the Ark-La-Tex model railroad club, or the geographic area encompassing the intersection of Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas?

Longview is a little out of the way for me, but I might be able to get out to the WGH show in Fort Worth here in two weeks.

Well, I only spent a little money. I've learned to take a list of stuff I need with me. It keeps me from spending money on stuff that I don't need.
Glad you had a good time.
