We had an impressive array of attendees from the model railroad industry that were equally impressed, which really gives all a pat on the back and another big
THANK YOU !!!
Any of you that I have not thanked personally I do want to apologize for not doing so. I really feel that this is a really great effort that we all pulled together to show the region that we are dedicated model railroaders. Thanks again.
Because of our commitment to participate in a train show in Charlotte on June 28, we will not have any operating sessions at the barn in June. If you can help with that commitment (travel and set up on June 27 and show on June 28), please talk to me at the meeting on June 5. This should be a great showing for us.
Keep on track.
We should all be grateful to Fred Coleman who had the courage to undertake this event, and the sense of duty to see it through. He worked hard and long in preparing and delivering this, and is to be applauded.
We have a few pictures to share on these pages. For those who attended, may be a pleasant memory of what happened. For the others (an amazing and disappointing 70 percent of our members), you missed a great show and we missed your help, support and company during a delightful weekend.
We will have more about Smokey Mountain Rails 2008 in future issues. Next year we go to Pensacola, Florida, June 12 through 14, for Rails to Sails 2009, hosted by the Gulf Division.
