Contactiing TCA York for information

Went to York website and looked at FAQ which did not have answer. Then I went to contact list and clicking on Chairman, got a pop up asking if want Yahoo or Gmail for posting, neither account I have NOR want. Why not post the contact address so it can be copied and paste in persons own email program? If they don't want personal addresses then use TCA addresses that can be redirected to persons home email if desired. And the simple question I want answered is : What electronic devices are/are...

Reduced - 1947 Lionel 726 Berkshire & 2426W Tender w/ Box

sud148 ·
I purchased this on a business trip in 2013 at a small store in Colorado. The front boiler plate looks to have been replaced, but the rest appears correct and original. The grease hardened in the gear box so I disassembled, cleaned and applied red 'n tacky grease. The motor was missing a few ball bearings so I replenished them as well. The smoke unit was upgraded for liquid usage. There is a chip out of the one tender step, and the box is missing the flap not pictured. I ran this at...

Here are 3 client buildings that I will be displaying at the York train show. The White Tower and Mobil Gas are kits from Twin Whistle. The Raritan River freight house is scratch built from client pictures and drawings. I am also working on some electric substations to sell at York. My table is at the end of row K near the entrance side of the orange hall . For more information on the Raritan River freight house please check out their web page at: ...

Filled out the TCA survey, did you?

rrman ·
Just completed the survey, well done and researched.  Was interesting the things and services available, though I probably would not avail myself of them,  Only thing I gave a 10 on was attending York.  AFAIK there is no TCA activity in my neck of the woods    and modelers I know are HO or N, no O gaugers which makes me a lone wolf as such.  Once wife and I attend York, I will let membership lapse as in "been there, done that, move along to the next big thing on...

Discussions with the Lionel folks at York

Bob Bubeck ·
My chat with Ryan: Note that I am paraphrasing, so please take this into account. Ryan DOES read the OGR S scale board here. A good thing! Tooling costs vs. run size is always an issue (or rather THE issue). The SD40 is a real possibility – many RR names and configurations possible based upon the same tooling. The SD40 was used over a broad historical period down to the present day, thus its use is prototypically possible with many types and periods of rolling stock. Ryan very much likes the...

Hey NYC fans! Amherst Train Wreck 100th Anniversary Memorial Event Announcement

TrainWizard5972 ·
A little known event in the storied history of the New York Central’s Twentieth Century Limited was the Amherst, OH Triple Train Wreck of 1916. On March 29th, 1915 three trains collided just west of Amherst. It all began near dawn when New York Central train No. 86, the Buffalo Limited, stopped near the Amherst switch tower at a stop signal only to have the second section of No.86 ram into the rear end of the train. Telescoping the cars and knocking several onto the westbound tracks. Moments...

Important News About York and the TCA

Rich Melvin ·
At the April 2016 York TCA Meet, representatives from the "Big Four" manufacturers (Atlas, Bachmann, Lionel and MTH) met with representatives from the TCA National and the Eastern Division to express their concerns about the York TCA Meet. Subsequent to those meetings, several other manufacturers shared similar concerns. We added our voice to the chorus of those wanting to see changes at York to open the Orange Hall to the public on Saturday. Today I received a letter from Wayne S. Sheriff,...

SUD, You will want to update your listing as you have the more desireable 2426W tender, the 12 wheel cast vs the more common 8 wheel plastic 2046W. The box is incorrect for your tender.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow. We are up to our ears in parts. It takes so many components to make a single model. Each new ride we develop I tell myself "this one will be the easiest to build" and each time it takes a little longer than the last one. Haha. My fingers have been so caked with glue, my iPhone wouldn't recognize my thumbprint to unlock it for the past week!

We are putting the final touches on the ferris wheel this weekend. We have made some additions to the model such as including people in the seats and WORKING LIGHTS. Price will now be $350 for the model, but I think the added realism justifies the cost. We also have lighting kits for the rocket ride and tumble bugs available as add-ons.

The solution seem to be Two Shows next to each other at at York. A Public Dealer & Manufacture Show and a private TCA only Show & Swap meet. Locally in the past, there been Train Shows with separate Doll & Toy Shows next door. NMRA has conventions with a separate public Manufacture & Dealer Show nearby.

If it's just the Orange Hall, and only on Saturday, that would be great, if the PA Dept of Revenue agreed. Orange Hall vendors would have to be set up all day. Let's see what comes of this?

Re: Important News About York and the TCA

Country Joe ·
I have an idea. This is just a suggestion as a possibility. Since TCA members have badges that have their name and TCA number, non members could buy badges that are a different color and say something like non-member allowing them to get into the dealer halls but not the member halls. If I remember correctly there were two large layouts, one O and one S, in the Black hall, no vendors. Non members could be allowed in the dealer and layout halls while members and guests get access to all...

"I will save my 50$ and just attend the show when its open to the public, And I feel I am not alone, So my thought is the people who need to be worried about the meet to open to the public would be TCA national." It has been noted here that a large amount are TCA members strictly for going to this York meet, of which it appears the national organization gets no revenue. As many, if not almost all, TCA Divisions seem to have open to the public meets maybe that is what they need to do across...

I will be attending O Scale West this Friday and Saturday in Santa Clara. This show is open to the public but hardly anyone outside the O gauge community attends. (The $35 registration fee may be a factor.) There are only a handful of manufacturers. I can only recall 3 from last year - 3rd Rail, Kohs and Key. Public Delivery Truck was the only large vendor that I remember. There weren't many public people attending last year's Cal-Stewart meet either although the event was widely advertised.

Remember this who will pay for the additional time for security and staff to stay at the fairgrounds, also who will pay for a complete revamp of the registration we let the guards and medical staff leave at 2:30 when the event is completed if we keep the meet open all day there will be a cost that only the dealers will pay, If the dealers are loosing money will they pay for this

Thanks for the information it is greatly appreciated. I have a few thoughts I would like to share as well. Opening to the public is not a bad idea to keep the hobby going and provide opportunities for the vendors to make more money...after all this is a business. But the carrot has to be there for the TCA members... Perhaps on Thursday instead of opening the show at Noon there could be consideration given to opening at 10AM or 11AM and those members can get done what they need in that...

Re: Important News About York and the TCA

I'm really in line with the progressive thinking here! Thank you Rich for sharing the letter from our TCA president and part of your letter to TCA from OGR. I like it that the Orange Hall is open to the general public only on Saturday. Saturday is a day when most ordinary working folks could potentially make a trip ( 1 - 2 hours or more ) to York. Where else is the ordinary non- TCA member going to see the latest and greatest from the top train manufactures, custom layout businesses, custom...

The only reason I went to York was to buy trains on the cheap. Opening the show to the public and the associated tax problems that come with it will cause those prices to rise. However this is about the future of the hobby. I think allowing the public in is the only way to save the show. The membership of the TCA isn't getting any younger and the show is in decline.

I think the discussion is to open the halls on Friday for the TCA only and Saturday for the public. Anyone who has been to York on Saturday knows that it is totally dead that day. Boosting attendance that day will make the event more profitable for all. Who knows maybe the Bandit meets will make a rebound. Scott Smith

I think the best solution is to keep Thursday and Friday exclusively TCA . Then, Saturday can be open to the general public , even if only the dealer halls. If the vendors feel that Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday are too much, then I would be ok with eliminating Thursday as long as Saturday is all day. Also, admission to the public should be a minimum of $20 for an individual or $30 for a family (spouse and children under 12). That way it pays to be a TCA member.

My Feeling is that o scale needs a place to be the focus the problem is that look at the cost to get into the hobby its not for the average consumer if the manufactures want to help they could start by looking inward that's why when you go to shows like NMRA and so on O scale lives in the back or in the corner

If it is only the Orange hall and only on Saturdays then the Saturday hours should mimic those of other shows, open until at least 3 pm. Just as a comparison how do the vendors at the Allentown show handle sales tax?
