We decided to load the van yesterday based on the fine weather.  Speaking of weather- forecast good thus far for the upcoming weekend.  The 26 x 58 foot layout fit well but the real challenge is always the re-loading after the meet, kinda like a suit case on a trip.


Excitement builds as we look forward to all those attending and their various locomotive power.

Have a safe trip.

Actually, we have created a bit more room.  We took off the straps from the boards allowing for the 6 section yard to be placed into the track area.  Secondly, we have gone to the yellow folding legs, much more compacted but much heavier.

Extra room-
Of course, in the center of the van is a void yet to be filled with tools, and train items!  Without a doubt the van will have no extra space given that we are transporting not only our "goods" but that of a few customers to and from having done work on retrofits.

I am hoping to have room for a boat to run at the pond on Sunday.

One advantage (disadvantage in costs) is that Ryan will be driving his car with the locomotives.  Particularly necessary given that we will have 2 CF locomotives to bring along with the KFC, RFC, GS4-GW,  and well....space will tell the actual line up.

Trying to get all ready so that I can sleep easy that evening before and get that "refreshing" early morning start (NOT- never a morning person).

Actually someone else is making this very hard!  For us it's very easy: give us live steam or death.  Well, I hope you enjoy your weekend with the family.

Tomorrow at this time we will be close to steam mecca on the East Coast for this coming weekend.  The weather seems to be true to the season but the travel should be smooth sailing.
TIme for the final check list, a good night sleep and then early start tomorrow morning.

The finale to the weekend event was a surprise to all the vendors and exhibitors.  We were invited to:
York Couty Hertiage Trust Museum for dinner (free)

http://www.yorkheritage.org/agindmuseum.html

Absolutely a treat given the great food and excellent exhibit of industrial power in the York area throughout history of the region.  If I had known in advance the layout and offering of the various companies represented the camera would have been filled!

The newest exhibition Air, Land & Water: Transporting People & Products in York County allows visitors the opportunity to closely examine a Conestoga Wagon, 1937 Aeronca K Airplane, and Switcher Number 2287. Through these and other displays covering carriages, bicycles, canals, and automobiles, guests will experience the impact improved transportation methods had on York County from the 1700s to the present day. Apples, automobiles, potatoes and player pianos are a few of the many stories that relate the rich agricultural and industrial heritage of York County.   Visitors can enjoy an in-depth look at the history of many industries that made the county an international name in manufacturing. The large scale of the museum, once an industrial complex has provided space to reconstruct an 1830's grist mill, complete with an operating water wheel and an A-frame ammonia compressor, over 30' high, manufactured in 1904 to refrigerate a meat packing plant.   The Industrial & Agricultural Museum is located along the northern terminus of the York County Heritage Rail Trail that extends from York to Baltimore.

Hugh crowd on Saturday and as with most events very light on Sunday (maybe it was football parties... or the economical worries).
