        There are a LOT of very talented people that go to this show and it was also great for getting some small parts - lots of neat vendors.

      Title says it all. The well known show in Lebanon, PA has been cancelled, due to Covid 19 concerns. They explain it would be impossible for a show that large and many traveling from great distances to comply with directives and keep people safe.

      A real loss for me, and many others I m sure.  I love that show. Ah well, look to the future

      Such a shame!   I've only been once, but it was a great show.   There are a LOT of very talented people that go to this show and it was also great for getting some small parts - lots of neat vendors.

    • Thanks Jerry;

       

      I thought this would happen, but now I know for sure.  Still have not made it to that event, but hoping to do so.  Have a dear friend in Lebanon County, so lodging is not an issue.

       

      Best, David Meashey

      EBT was supposed to interconnect with the 3' gauge out of Harrisburg, which never got built. Then came the South PA Highway/Turnpike instead.

      I've been over that pass a few times. Don't think I would do it towing my travel trailer, but the Lovenasium should be fine

    • Have watched about 60 percent of both videos.  A whole lot of the first one can just be listened to, but still interesting.  The start of the second part or maybe a little before that really gets in to a tour of Rockhill Furnace and you can see the extent to what the rebuild entails.  Literally new rail on some turnouts.  All of this is really good stuff and the dedication of the guys working on this should be applauded.  Thank you Randy and all the other people involved.

    •    I got this in the mail from the Colorado Railroad Museum. Apaprently they are sponsoring a joint presentation with the Rail Photo Art people on the work and life of Ted Rose. It's of interest to me for obvious reasons, but I thought, what with all the photographers here, others might be interested. Most of you might know about Ted Rose; he was a fine painter, mostly watercolor, but also a fine photographer.
