    • As usual, the annual INVASION of Friends starts on Thursday, July 18th...

          It would be nice to hear from those planning to attend, so that planning can be completed.

             The Railroad is in great shape, with several major upgrades, and improvements in the operations.

    • Its a long way from Carlyle, Illinois to Martha and Bob's, so we left this morning.

      .

      We do have a few stops along the way, but we did actually leave this morning for points east and north. 

      .

      Let the fun begin.  Look forward to seeing many of you along the way.  Yes, I/we like to eat.

    • While the cow palace is used for several train shows, there is also the Exhibition Hall. WMVGRS did their shows in that.

    • Hi Ric- You're welcome.  The dates may squeeze me as well on my trip south....but those were the only dates available to Star Hobby....we shall see.

      Enjoy your present wanderings.

    • Jerry,

      Thank you for keeping everyone updated on this.  I've got it on our calendar, however it is in conflict with the last Car Card/ Waybill Ops at the Ridge Live Steamers.  However, one never knows how things will change.  Please keep posting on this.

    • OK an update on ECLSTS 2020

      I spoke with Dan at Star Hobby, and he confirmed that the show will be in Timonium, MD state fairgrounds on

      13 and 14 March 2020.

      The new venue and dates are on the ECLSTS web site, but he had not yet had a chance to change all the York centric graphics

      He is working on hotels to find a good rate, and I will try to keep in contact with him in that regard.  I can then follow up on the hotel regarding the party room, beer kegs, cases of lickker, etc....
