    • I’ve been trying to get in as a clinician for starting in small environ or growing the hobby with the kids. Every time I reach out, get told, wait a couple weeks. Since it falls during the end of the school year I’d like to get a clinic spot so I can claim it for work for my school’s train club.

      So, long story short, I’m up in the air (though i have couches to surf since I have friends that live down there).

    • Hi Folks;

      I will not get to boil water with a bunch of friends at ECLSTS this year.  One of our great nieces is getting married that same weekend.  Family first!  She has been a good student and civil engineer, and we want to support her on her special day.

      Regards, David Meashey

    • I am looking for G scale railroaders in the Georgetown Texas area. Anywhere within 30 miles is good. Anyone out there? Let me here from you.

    • I think we can make July this year. We did our Denver trip last month.  May could be a possibility too if I can get the camper ready in time.  Still needs more work

    • Jane and I hope to be there in July, providing I can find an Oxygen line long enough to get there..

    • The July one I can make, as long as it doesn't interfere with Freds. The others I'm not so sure about.

    • Bob,

      You said - "Plus I have TrainOps 2020 penciled in for July 24-25-26".

      Sounds great to have other sessions, but the best we can do is one per year.  7/ 24-26 is absolutely fantastic for our schedule.  Please pencil us in.

    • Swing by and pick me up....I'll operate for June 13th if we can run Amtrak !

    • I'm looking to add some more ops sessions this year, and wanted to throw out some information.  Details TBD.


      First, I'm looking to add an ops weekend mid-May-ish.


      Our yard and gardens are on a garden tour June 13th, and I'd like a couple operators here for it, and I'm hosing an Ops session for the NMRA NER Convention on Oct 10, so I figure Ill open the RR for the rest of the weekend as well.


      Plus I have TrainOps 2020 penciled in for July 24-25-26.
