I had dinner tonight with a few fellow live steamers (eight to be exact) and of those eight, five (including myself) are making the trip northwards to Cabin Fever Expo next weekend. It seems as if we might have a rather large turnout of MLS guys. Who all out there is going??   


Not trying to be repetitive, or trying to boost my post count, just trying to figure how many people are going.
(and whatcha bringin'?)

Dave,

I'll be there with C-16, GS-4 and AC-12. Jeff will be there on Saturday/Sunday with his C-16 and his "used-to-be-a-mogul" 4-4-0.

Best regards,

Alan

Alan - aare you even going to have any time to play with anything other then your Cab Foward? If your not running it you will be drooling over it. :0

You will also get to see Lilly Belle out of the box, Dan's is going to have his there. Be warned on 1 tank of gas from cold water to no gas was 13 min of actual run time. About 5-7 mins to heat up to 40 PSI. VERY SAD.

I'll be there, Probally the K28, Climax, what used to be a ruby. Hopefully I will have some special cars to run with the Ruby if they come here in time and I get them together.

Well Dave,

Since I know your bringing the Wangerrooger..Wagontooter...Rotorooter...oh heck, the nice lil' Regner you have, I'll post up our list:

Myself, Chuck, and two cars worth of:
-Portable Track
-GS-4
-Coal Fired K-4 and Ruby
-PFE Reefers, SP & PRR caboose/cabin car
-A surprise
-Maybe some Daylight cars...depends on the room we got left.


P.S.
Jay,

He's gonna be so busy drooling over the AC-12, he won't notice that his GS-4 has new siderods on it! (oops, did I say that out loud??/Providers/HtmlEditorProviders/Fck/FCKeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/angel_smile.gif)

I hope to be there on Saturday, that is if I get back from Japan on Friday as planned.  I will bring my Radio Controlled Ditcher as part of the work train for the K-28.

I'll be there with one of my coworkers. In an update from the post I made in the old forum we WILL be there in an official Aristocraft booth. Nothing like deciding at the last minute.

I'll be there all weekend with my son Cooper. We are bringing our Mike Chaney Climax and Shay, as well as some Hit & Miss engines and other items relating to other stuff at the show.

I'll be there...as a vendor. Probably won't have much large scale stuff, tho....beyond a few static pieces suitable for scenery or flat car loads. Mostly bringing stationary engine kits, putt putt boats and other live steam toys this time. Please stop by and say "hi!" anyway, tho ;)

Anybody else staying at the Holiday Inn on Arsenal Rd?

I'll be there, if my chauffeur doesn't loose his way. ;) Maybe I should bring my GPS just in case. I will be bringing my Mortimer and Wilma since they are the only ones I have so far.

My wife and I still hope to make cabin fever. I still am holding out hope that my Ogwen kit will arrive in time for me to get it ready. Cheers Mike and Michele T

It's just a little too far for me to drive but I hope you all have fun. Could one of you guys attending please ask the show promoters if they plan on having any more of the Men, Metal & Machines shows out here in California? The last show they did out here we had Bob Starr's live steam track setup and about a dozen guys running. Pretty good turnout for not much preparation time. I know there are alot of people I have talked to that really miss that show! Please let them know the CA guys would like them to come back!

OK wise guy, I know where you live, at least I think I do, at least you better hope I do since I am your "chauffeur"./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

If I remember rightly from  the vendor meeting last year, they really loved doing the show, even though it was a haul for them....but the problem was not enough vendors and spectators for them to break even considering the rents and stuff out there.

Window opens if:

Sunday drive to picnic grounds
Visit to the Dutch Country
Ride the Dinner train at Strasburg

Probably the best shot:

DISCOUNT OUTLET STORES!!
