    • There'll definitely be room in the driveway since Ric ain't bringing his bus.

      Jon, How about that recently renovated AreVee. 

      That would definitely be a cost savings, but I've yet to get the furnace working again and it can get a little chilly in Pennsylvania in April.  That, and I've yet to take it on the interstate with the new, lighter tow vehicle.  I think it will be fine, but I'd rather do a short trip first.  Also needs a new awning installed. Old one has all but disintegrated this winter.

    • We need Pet Friendly, so our choices are limited. Last year we stayed at the Comfort Inn in Glen Mills and it was good. This year Hilton has opened a Home2 in Glen Mills for a little less. We've stayed in Home2 in Denver and it was nice - but very modern.  There is also a Candlewood Suites west of Wilmington Newark, MD. in the same price range. We stayed in a Candlewood in Denver over Christmas and the bed was awesome!

    • The rail they used for the show is smaller than we use on our main line...i think that is 30# rail we use 60#rail (pounds per yard)  we do have some of the light rail in our yard where speeds are slow.

      I am glad you got to see it last weekend!

      From Eric's post above:

      This is a real working steam locomotive, two foot gauge.  It had been a standard worker at the Edaville Railroad in South Carver Mass.

      My son and I probably road behind it one time in Carver.

      Got a cab ride that time, too :-)

      The attached photo must be 40 years old - taken at Edaville.  And yes, that's me when I was young and handsome.

    • I was there on Saturday morning and was able to meet up with Dan P. We had a nice conversation and I was really surprised at the amount of people who were there. That 20,000 figure was more like the “by 10:00 estimate. When I left at 11:00, the ticket line was about half way back to the parking area. It was a very impressive show for sure. My first reaction to the steam loco was how much work moving it there must have been!

    • My wife and I are planning on being there. Will be there in time to place a couple of buildings in the competition for fun. Hoe to put a face to a name there.

    • Thanks, Greg.

      When I went to enter on my calendar, I already had it written in. Another sign of Old Age.
