      All joking aside and to insure the record is correct.. 

      This is not an ""Invite only"" operations session..  Anyone is invited to attend..

      We would just appreciate a ""heads up"" so we have some idea as to how many will be here..

      Thanks

      Along with what Andy said - I don't think anyone has EVER been invited.   We just show up.   (Well, sure, we DO have to run the State Police roadblocks sometimes, but that's just part of the "adventure"...)

       

      Anyway, Jean and I will be there!

      I got an OK from Andy to come and am looking forward to it.

      You are WAY ahead of me.   I NEVER got an OK from Andy - even when he was the yardmaster! 

       

      It's OK, Bruce...   I never got an OK, either..    I just show up and surprise folks...

    • Reservations are made. I almost had to put up with Rooster on the way out, but he chickened out, but he does have some stuff he wants me to deliver.

    • Jean and I plan to be there!  

       

      Looking forward to seeing everybody.

    • The big Largescale Operations of the year is the next event on the BS calendar.  This is always the biggest event of the year and the

      temperatures, historically, have been the best.  Its less than a month until everyone is gathering at the Clarke's and I guess it would be nice to see a head count of who is coming.

      Jan and I plan to be there, and we hope others interested in this part of the hobby, can beg an invitation from Andy and Jane.  Its always a great time.

      Did you mean ""Bics"" as in Bic pens???  Naw, we don't need any more pens...

      Well, crud.  There goes my idea for a gift next month....

      I don't think the drugstores are open on Sunday there - and not even sure if they have 24 hour turn-a-round.

    • Oh, we'll give you a parade all right...  

    • September 20, 2019 10:14 PM EDT
    • Even though you already know, here is my "heads up"! I would also like a parade, with floats and people throwing candy at small children, as I pull in from the highway.

        "..IF.."    

      Someone that's not into operations but the modeling and photography side of the hobby and would like to run their rolling stock on the BS what would one bring ? OCS cars, Amtrash?

       

       

      Just a question for those that may have both ?

       

      Either or all.. 

      That's up to the choice of the person bringing stuff...  All couplers here are Kadee and at kadee height gauge..

      I do have some coupler transition cars..
