Well, For me York has been a shell of its former self for years. No Weaver, no Kline. Really been a lack of good product the last few times I’ve been. In fact it’s just not worth it for me to go. In fact if it wasn’t for 611 in Strasburg last Oct I wouldn’t have gone to York at all.
i know this isn’t what the author wanted when he started this thread bit York isn’t York anymore. Hasn’t been for many years. What I miss. York of the early 2000’s
Nothing in life is like it was yesterday. Sometimes that's bad, and sometimes it's good. I'll enjoy York for what it is as long as possible. To me, despite traveling 550 miles each way, there's nothing like taking a few days where I don't have to think about anything but trains.
And I certainly don't miss the circa 2000 prices for common items or those in poor condition. I wish that some of the vendors would face reality about their prices, but if they want to drag it back and forth every year, that's up to them.
