|Train Show hits the mark again!
The 1997 train show was a complete success again. As you will see from the figures on the following pages, the numbers came in real close to last year. We must be doing something right.
The train show committee was a little on edge this year because some of our usual vendors from the western part of the state were attending a show in New York that happened to coincide with ours. We compensated by inviting new vendors and expanding the size of the layouts. In the end everything turned out OK. Now the task begins at starting the 1998 show. It is a never ending cycle.
An all member work day is being scheduled for May 17, 1997 to work on redecking the flat car. Currently we have removed the old decking and over the next few weeks will be priming the metal framing. On the 17th we would like to begin to relay the new decking boards. Work will begin at 9:00 am and the chapter may spring for lunch. Come on down and give us a hand.
