Got the all clear form the CFO and unless my mother throws a wrench in the works when I get home to change clothes and pack a train up I'll be headed up tonight for the WNYGRS meeting. Hope to meet Leftyfret guy (matt) and a few others. Honestly I'm wondering if I'll recognize any of them from my days working at Niagara Hobby & Craft?
There are 2 G1MRA [Gauge 1 Model Railway Association] members in Niagara On The Lake. Here's the link to the Association [http://www.gaugeone.org/]. They would have to forward your email to the members.
I AM A MEMBER ALSO OF WNYGRS AND I CANT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS CLUB. WE DO TWO TRAINS SHOWS A YEAR AND LAYOUTS AT THE BUFFALO BOTANICAL GARDENS AND HAMBURG FAIR IN AUGUST. OUR PAST PRESIDENT IS FROM FORT ERIE AND TRYS TO COME TO EVERY MEETING. WE USUALLY MEET ONCE A MONTH AND HAVE FOUR OR FIVE PUBLIC OPEN HOUSES OF MEMBERS LAYOUT. OUR WEBSITE IS WNYGRS.COM
My live steam track will be available for running from 10am to 4pm Saturday May 15 at Ridge Road Station.
For those unfamiliar the outer line is 6' radius dual gauge 32/45mm and the inner loop is 5' radius 45mm.
Anyone in the area is welcome to join in the fun.
Another excuse to miss RRS train races but a good one...I'll be recovering from some minor surgery this weekend. Can't make the WNYGRS meeting either, same excuse. Already have June's meeting on my calendar though.
Hello? Is anyone still there? DW and I going to be in Olafub the last week of August 2010 and I'm wondering if there are any large scalers in WNY who'll let me trample their posies and see their garden railroad(s). Or any other kinda trains.
BTW, didn't Sid Ceasar and Imogene Coca also do "Niagara Falls?"
