Friends,
This years banquet speaker is taller than 4 ft. He is knowledgable in garden railroading operations and has taken many train rides on tourist lines in the US. He REALLY likes steam locos. Last years speaker will be hard to top, but we are trying!
Clubs, order tickets in a block and you can get seating together.
Clinics are coming together and include topics like AirWire, Scratch Building Locos, Building Wood Structures, Weathering with Spray Can Paint, and presenters include names some of you will know!
Don't forget the layout tour on Sunday, May 3, 2009!
Check http://www.segrs.com/ for all the details!

Johnny,
Thanks for asking about the show. Right now, we plan to offer all clinics both days, but that may change. It is our current plans. That goldfish car is something else! I'm going to that one, too. Keep watching the web site for firm details. We will post those as soon as all is confirmed. We are still looking at a few other clinics.
Don't forget the model contest, banquet Friday evening and LAYOUT TOURS ON SUNDAY! This show will almost be a mini-convention!

Last years speaker didn't know much, but he was dressed to the hilt. One classy guy. To bad he didn't know much about trains. I have a picture of him in his his tux, but couldn't find it.

RJ,
I am planning on it. I already have my time off set at work. Not sure you remember what that is. Thats where you go every day and at the end of the week they give you a check, then you remember why you are there. Although after visiting with our buissnees manager at the union hall about my retirerment. I found out that my train purchaces will increase tremendously next year when I retire. Even though I really love my job, that I have been doing it for 40 years. after seeing the figures this morning, made it all worth while. Thanks Rex

Sounds like an interesting event, but it is one of there big RR things going on in the GA/TN area that weekend, so for me it may be Friday only......the start of a BUSY weekend. :)

Atlanta is a Delta (we get you there with a scare) hub

Nashville has SWA

Both are a bit of a drive, Atlanta being closer.

Chattanooga, TN is CLOSEST to show site (about 30 minutes). Atlanta is probably best choice for cheap and selection of flights (about 1hour 30 minutes from show site--DEPENDING ON TRAFFIC).
Chattanooga sure has less traffic!
