Spreading the word!

Spreading the word!

Postby areibel » Wed May 25, 2016 8:39 pm

I recently attended an NMRA meeting for a new division. The county I live in was originally included in the NMRA's Niagra frontier region, which meant most of the activity was near Buffalo NY or in Canada. The new region includes a couple PA counties and most of northeastern Ohio, so most of the activities are closer.
They held a meeting in Erie PA, so I decided to check it out.
They have a "Bring & Brag" at each meeting, so I thought I'd bring some TT and brag about it! I was able to answer a few questions and show off a SW1200, Ingo's RS3 a GC boxcar and a Zeuke tank car. And we even have a few pics of TT in an NMRA publication.

My 'spread-the-word' effort at the April joint NMRA PCR (Pacific Coast Region) + WP Historical Society meet in Modesto, CA:
2016-0422 PCR+WP TT-West.jpg
TT-West table display
Offering:
MTB SW-1200
Zeuke/MTB FunnelFlow tank cars
Lok-n-Roll/GCR Box Cars
Keuhn Track start-set
MTB MP1 switch motors

The switch motors sold... the TT got comments.

I had a good time. It was the first time I had met most of those guys, I wondered if they'd think I was a model railroad crackpot or something. But there was some real interest, a lot of great questions and they told me to bring more the next time I go.
Now I've got to get busy and finish something- the bring & brag is supposed to be for stuff you've BUILT, not bought but I cheated this time!
