Max; Although you are considerably younger that a lot of us geezers, I'd still suggest wear comfortable shoes!!! In addition, print out the maps for the halls you plan on visiting and, before you start, highlight the places you definitely want to visit (and I guarantee, you will miss at least one that you highlighted). But mostly, as Mark said, have fun.
I would start with the Orange Hall. You may not make it to another hall - there's that much stuff. It's a lot to take in for a first timer. In April the dealer halls will be open until 4 on Saturday so you'll have more time then. Just enjoy yourself and go with the flow. -Greg
Great video. Glad you enjoyed your first York. I went for he first time in October 2015. I had to pick up my jaw off the floor several times. I joined the TCA and went as a dealer last October. Plus i got some killer deals.
I think we should vote Max for President of a Train club. He is an asset and ambassador to the hobby who will carry it on into the future. Max, if you ever have an issue with an MTH piece, email Mike Wolf directly. He will make things happen for you. You are OUR future of the hobby. Nice job on the video.
Thanks. Interesting. That would make two S gauge club layouts in the White Hall this week -- the W&OD and NPS. The NPS Facebook page and website show now upcoming events on them. Not updated? The more S the merrier.
Hi David, We were in Black Hall last year with a O Scale club. Perhaps with more visibility and traffic we can encourage others to make the jump to S. The NPS website was started by a member who left and isn't giving the information to update it to the club. So our members are using Facebook until or unless the situation resolves. Looking forward to meeting people this weekend. Francine
For those attending the Spring York Train Show (14-16 April)…we offer you free York delivery on new orders placed now through April 9 th . Just let us know you will be attending and would like York delivery when placing the order. We will do the rest. Thank you!!
We had a nice leisurely drive from Iowa, arriving in Enola PA October 19 th , where we stayed in a motel directly across from Enola yard! Next morning went to a local bridge where the township provided a pedestrian/car bridge over the Enola yard with camera and viewing cutouts. Met several dealers and attendees killing time until the halls opened at noon, and were helpful in giving advice and orientation of York to this neophyte. Arrived at York before noon, but not before our in-car and...
In the latest news letter from the TCA, I noticed an add for another meet at a fire house in York, on the same days as the main York meet. Being rather new to the TCA, can anyone enlighten me about this or other meets going on concurrently with the TCA York meet ?
The Fall 2017 OGR Forum Grandstand Meeting was held on a beautiful Fall day. This was probably the prettiest day we have ever had for a Fall York. Finally, we could sit outside in the grandstands, spread out and enjoy the weather. But wait – we are meeting in the dusty Gold Hall last used in the Eisenhower administration, based on the “I Like Ike” bumper stickers on the golf carts. I bet they do – or did. Ed, Jim, Alan and Rich were in attendance. This is probably the largest crowd that I...
Spoke to Bill Parr (southeast Pennsylvania areas) who specializes in S Gauge/Scale (Flyer, Flyonel, American Models, S Helper and MTH). Bill states that he is no longer doing Allentown and is dropping spring York. He has alot of S, doesn't have a store, or website so it is difficult to buy from him, unless you have contacts or first hand knowledge. We in S have to be more proactive than other scales and you really want it to be in S, but I always like a challenge. Maybe we can encourage/help...
I had an extended and interesting conversation with Lionel at York on Saturday. Having a background in economics and advertising some things became clear to me. If the economy of the country doesn't tank in the next year, Lionel will be doing some very interesting things including our favorite "s" gauge/scale. I was very impressed by knowledgeable staff (they are all different folks than the ones I used to know) they were open, knew the product, the market and wanted to hear what the...
Friday, October 18, 2019. Spent 3 hours at the York Meet. Drove to Strasburg for this amazing experience. Then drove back to York for another 2 hours at the toy train meet. And, I got to meet and hang out with some great train people during the show and at supper. What an awesome day! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48XSphkjRlM
The cost at the door is $22 to enter the Meet. A spouse or significant other is only $2. If you register for the Meet online before September 1st. it's $15.50. The badges for the Meet are good for all three days of the Meet. You can register for the York Meet here --> York Meet Registration Here's all the information about the TCA Eastern Division York Meet. --> TCA Eastern Division Website
Well been retired but working at another job until recently really retiring fully. York has been on my bucket list (joined TCA several years ago but York didn't work out), but never had contiguous full weeks to do a leisurely trip to and from York plus see other attractions along the way for me and for wife. now things have changed and so moved to top of list to do this year.
RRMAN, glad that you are able to finally go. It doesn't matter how long you've been on the forum or into trains, it's just good that you finally get to go. Enjoy. p.s. I sent you an email on some tips about York but it bounced back.
Register in advance (on-line or mail). Cheaper than at the door and you also won't have to wait in line, you can just walk into the halls when the meet opens once you have your badge. (you need to visibly wear your badge at all times.) -Dave
You should bump into many Forum guys at York. I would like to say hello if we cross paths. This will be York number 73 for me. Each one is better than the one before. Enjoy yourself and have fun. Marty
