I for one would really enjoy stories about York in the early days and the changes over the years.
My first York was in 1985. Many were buying Lionel and Flyer pre and post war trains for their collections. Now, they are trying to sell them for prices at least as high as what they bought them for.
Today's York seems no smaller than it was back then. In fact, square footage-wise, it may be larger. The biggest difference is that the cars in the parking lots looked far more interesting than the ones look today. What has not changed (yet) is your feeling about being somewhere very special.
