East Broad Top, Rockhill Furnace (Orbisonia), Pennsylvania, March 26, 2017
Ray Kaminski

Many thanks to the organizers and everyone that stopped by the RPM Meet in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Really interesting discussions about modeling and the direction the hobby is taking. Several attendees mentioned other RPM meet locations to consider so there may be an announcement in the near future, so check back here or on our Facebook page.

Had a chance on the way home to visit the East Broad Top RR in Rockhill Furnace (Orbisonia). It happened to be a work weekend for the Friends of the EBT and they’re doing wonderful work. Hats off to Lee Rainey and the volunteers.

The changed date for the October Timonium show still hasn’t been resolved so, as of this time, we will NOT be attending Timonium on October 7/8. Rather, we will be in Berea, Ohio for the Great Berea Train Show that weekend. Again, watch this space (or Facebook) in case this changes. Check now if you think you need anything and want to get it at the April 8/9 show. Some of the calendar cards I passed out show last years date — sorry. Still no concrete decision regarding the date conflict between the Fine Scale Model Railroader Expo in Altoona and the NY State Model Train Fair in Syracuse in November — stay tuned.

Revised lists for both Blackstone Models and the original Tsunami® sound systems have been posted.

KMP Models has introduced a new kit – HO Log Camp Cars with scale lumber and custom dummy couplers. See a photo here. Soon to be available in S and O scales.

Don’t forget the MANGG Module Meet in Kimberton, PA on 5/20. As mentioned last time the issues regarding the hall have been resolved. Check the MANGG Website midatlanticng.org to register as an attendee, vendor or displaying your module.

Don’t step on the rails.
