People are always going to complain, especially on an internet forum. But at least now we know the topics of the OGR threads after this April York show regarding the new public admission policy. It failed because of the high admission cost and it failed due to not enough advertising. I think I even saw a hint of the third reason, TCA charges member dues. The member dues usually pops up from people who don't belong to TCA. It won't matter how many people attend from the public, we already know that the results will fall far short for some people on this forum.
Many comments refer to the public not being aware of the York train show. I find it hard to believe that more than 50% of the local people 25 yrs old and up do not know about the York train show. It's also possible that they have real jobs as well. Look at the percentage of retired age people on this forum or at a York train show.
I can hazard a guess that there are many people in Indianapolis who don't attend the 500, or in Louisville who don't go to the Kentucky Derby.
BTW, I don't go to shows for Dolls, Stamps, Guns, Cars, Fishing, Boating, Hunting, Antiques, Fashion, Interior Decorating, Art, Books, Records, Music, Racing, Home Improvements, HO including WGH, Cooking, Home Brewing, Fitness, or HSC. I am aware, but I just don't go. I do travel to York and local TCA shows and I do belong to the TCA in the Lone Star division. It would be interesting to know what posters above are a TCA member, what division, and if they went to York at all in 2016.
