Self-Guided Layout Tours

 

Highball To Indy 2016 will feature a variety of layout tours all week long . . . some involving scheduled bus trips (at a modest price), others including home and club layouts that are "open" during various periods of time.  To help explain the options for this second group of tours, the Self-Guided Tours, you are responsible for your own mens of transportation to these sites.  The advantage of Self-Guide trips is the flexibility; plan to go to any or all layouts of interest, in any order, and spend as much time as you wish at the individual sites.  To help with planning trips to these layouts, review the details below.  Notes: Maps will be available for purchase, and pick-up, the week of HTI 2016.
