Greetings all:

Since it's a bit after the holiday season, perhaps we should look towards one of this winter's biggest event . . . The Springfield Train Show, January 26-27.

A group of us from Kingston, ON are headed that way again despite the dollar difference.

I was wondering if other RR-L members will be attendance and would like to get together for a quick "meet and great" on either day.

It was fun two years ago, when my son, Dustin, and I, met a few folks on the Saturday. He will be joining me again this year.

Any thoughts?

Great photo gents! Agreed, a bit of powder on my forehead would reduce the shine! That day, two things could be seen from the ISS, the Great Wall of China and my forehead. LOL.

We had a great chat with everyone. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Picked up a few items.

As is typical on the return home, driving north from Syracuse, on I-81, encountered whiteout conditions through the Watertown area, then cleared up about ten miles or so before 1000 Islands Bridge.

I went Sunday and the crowds were definitely smaller. Nice weather means the parking lot is a giant mud pit.........
Orionvp17 Posted - 02/05/2019 : 10:53:10 AM
And all of the gorgeous weather apparently wrought the dreaded result this year, too... ARS says the gate was 17,154, and adding in exhibitors, vendors, friends of the photographer, hangers-on and such, the total was 21,004.

In really good weather, folks head for Vermont to ski, and the weather was fabulous....

Good bet, Jim!

Nice chat, too.... Thanks, Guys!

James, that garment would be perfect out here for those who insist on running, walking the dog or cycling wearing fashionable black, or worse, their cammo togs, all of which blend them into the scenery and make things unsafe for everybody. You could see that thing from the other side ofthe BLC!

James and I should have powdered our foreheads before the photo :-)

Saturday several RR-Line members got together at the Hub Division's layout in the Better Living Center:

I was really bright for the show as a courtesy to family members. Dave Emery is to my left, Pete Magoun at extreme right. IIRC the two gentlemen in the middle came from Ontario, but I didn't note their names. Pete?

It seems you are having a fun time, I miss seeing "Maggie the Clown Show: !! LOl I wish I would have gone with you now.

Terry823 Posted - 01/26/2019 : 12:50:39 PM
Right now Im sitting and watching Maggie the Clown Show. The food lines are huge, and all of the seats at the tables are taken. At least I can sit a while here. This show is just amazing. Its only noon and Im running on E but I have to keep going. Wish me luck.

A group of us from the MLM will be going East Friday, and arriving Friday evening. We will be there thru Sunday noon. If you set something up, let me know.
Michael Posted - 01/22/2019 : 08:03:52 AM
Four days to Springfield Show!

Weather looks good for the journey and the weekend! A bit milder that right now.

resqrk Posted - 01/10/2019 : 01:40:50 AM
You'll need hiking boots for the half mile walk thru mud in the parking lot... LOL
Orionvp17 Posted - 01/09/2019 : 11:56:29 AM
Maybe I should have said "Wear 'cop shoes.'" The concrete floors are killers!

Hiking Boots are a godsend! Used them for years....

deemery Posted - 01/09/2019 : 11:38:59 AM
What Pete said! I usually wear my old hiking boots (even when I used to fly up from Virginia.)

Show is in the same location every year... the Eastern States Exposition Center, West Springfield, Massachusetts. Known as "The Big E," the venue offers lots of parking and is located off I-91 just a bit south of the Massachusetts Turnpike. Easily found by GPS or Google Maps.

Find show info here: http://www.railroadhobbyshow.com

Note that some sources will call this the "Amherst Show," as it is the Amherst Railway Society that puts this show on; it's generally known as "the Springfield Show" due to its location.

Bring good walking shoes... eight-plus acres, four buildings and something over 20,000 paid visitors in addition to the 4,000 or so exhibitors, vendors, etc.

Great Weekend!

in Michigan
