August 20, 2010

Bud Rindfleisch attended the NASG convention in Duluth, MN, and has sent a few pictures from the layout tours. Hopefully he will have more pictures and provide a report at a future meeting.

A few members attended Central Terminal Day at the Buffalo Bisons game earlier this month. Dave Blaufuss reported that the Bisons played a great game and that the replicas of the Central Terminal added to the night (even if they aren’t S scale). These may be available for sale and we will forward information if we see any details.

Bud has been in contact with Jim Martin of the S Scale group in Southern Ontario and they are holding an “S” Get-together on October 17th at the Lowbanks Community Hall, Lowbanks, ON. Here is some information from Jim…

“Some parts of the S Scale Workshop FreeMo display layout (scale) will be set up. Tables for display models and sale or swap items anyone chooses to bring. Food will be served...six dollars for soup, sandwich, dessert, and tea or coffee (pre-ordered). This is strictly a place for like-minded people to gather and socialize. It is not a formal train show in any sense of the word...no clinics or tours. Flyer, hi-rail and scale are all welcome.”

Let Bud (BlackDiamondRR@gmail.com or 716/649-9545) know by September 19th if you plan to attend and are interested in the lunch. Reminder, you will need a passport or enhanced drivers license to cross the border. We will provide more details for car-pooling, etc., closer to the time. Here is another great opportunity to meet other S scalers and see what they are doing in the scale.

Since we haven’t had a “meeting” since February, we should get together to discuss this year’s shows, the trip to Ontario, etc. So, our next meeting will be on Sunday, September 19th, at 1 PM at:

 

ALICE’S KITCHEN

3122 Sheridan Drive

Amherst

716/834-4182

 

If you plan to attend, please let Gregg (gmummert@hotmail.com, 585-655-3127)

know so we get a table to accommodate everyone.

 

We still need volunteers and ideas for future meetings.
