Railroad Line Forum,

Over the past few years, a fair number of RRL forum members broke bread at the Fall MER Convention. Hagerstown in 2009, Princeton in 2012 and Cary, NC in 2011. Who is planning to attend Milepost 40?

The web site is http://www.nmra-mer-tidewater.org/Convention/convention.html

Registration forms are on the MER web site. Rooms are available at the Hilton Garden Inn.

If you are interested in giving a clinic, please contact me via PM. I will forward your name to the committee.

Those attending might find Rush Loving's "The Men Who Loved Trains" (http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/product_info.php?products_id=84756) interesting as "required supplemental reading" before heading down to the convention. Fascinating story; Mr. McClellan is one of the Good Guys.

I'm one of those who attended both Princeton and Cary. Now that I'm going back to work, I'm just not sure this year.

I'm a member of the Tidewater Division, the convention host, so I'll be there.

Oh no!

Work getting in the way of model railroading. Tell us 'that four letter word' will not keep you from the RRL and your workbench.
