Dave Wallace was displaying some his fine collection of one of a kind pieces ...a reunion of the Jack Schaaf Atlantic and Pacific from the 1930's ...was a treat ...Dunseith's Northern ...created from an expanded Randall Hudson casting made a rare appearance, Brad Kaplan displayed the 180 prototype knobby Pullman ...Danny Tomelison had a wonderful display of Karl Rammling pieces ... love that "Tube train" ....please plan on attending next York ... great opportunity to see some wonderful trains and meet the folks , artists to learn the "rest " of the story ...1018190801101819080310181908081018190814a1018190814b1018190814c1018190814d1018190814e10181908151018190816a101819081910181908201018190823

Thanks Carey for posting - great photos. My only complaint is that the SGMA breakfast goes too fast, first thing you know and all those neat trains are being packed up so folks can get to their tables. Kirk - any idea of what we are going to do for Spring York? Maybe uh.. Saturday AM?

Jim,

I'm not sure what hours the TCA meet will be open when we transition back to a two day format.  If Saturday continues to be a short day, perhaps having our meeting after the show would be fun.  New acquisitions could be part of the "Show-N-Tell", and we would not feel rushed to finish as we do now.  However, if both Friday and Saturday are full days (9a-5p) we may want to switch to a Friday night dinner meeting.  Most people seem anxious to "hit the road" after the meet is over.

I got a question.

I thought the super motor has the brush tubes.

Hennings . refers to the barrel type as super.

And Jim . Hennings. Has the parts for barrel. Brushplates.

Mike Wolfe must have the tooling. To make the complete brushplate.

Couple of different styles over the years. I’m sure Hennings has parts for all types. I’ve been using bild a loco motors from MTH. Brand new units. They have the flare plate commutator. 

Mike says he owns all the SG tooling but makes everything in China. Min quantity for new traditional motors : 10,000
