Chris...you are correct and it is one reason why we decided to have the celebration the following day after York since a lot of folks will be planning to travel...it might be easier for them to plan one more day for our event.

Exactly what I'm thinking.    I usually travel back from York on Friday afternoon.   This October, I've added one more day.   Saturday afternoon is my planned travel day.   

Now with this announcement.   I may have to add another hotel night and attend the party.   Since I travel right through New Jersey on the way back to Maine.

This is a great addition to York this October. About 4 or 5 years ago, my wife and I attended York and we went over the following Sunday to see this great layout. Yes we are about 1,200 miles from you all,....but what is another night in a hotel and a few hundred miles to see the largest layout in the country. If you have not seen this layout yet, this October would be great to mark this off of your bucket list. You will not believe it when you see this layout. Plus, the eats and the fellowship is GREAT.

Made it to Trainstocks 1 & 3 I think it was, and would like to pay return visit but it's been a rough year.  Will keep our hopes up.

I might make it as I add a day onto the York trip.

We visited the New Jersey Hi-Railers a year or so ago - SPECTACULAR!

Although not yet 100% sure, I will do my best to move heaven and earth to attend this fabulous event and also make it to York on the Friday and Saturday immediately beforehand. Arnold 

I will be there. It's things like this that makes the NJ Hi Railers such a special group to belong too.

Try and make it Farmer, it would be great to see you.

Don't forget to RSVP. Still working on my coworker Bob about this. Is there any deadline to RSVP by? I know it is still a ways away, but always good to ask the questions before you're at the door and can't get in.

The deadline to rsvp is the Saturday before. We just want to gauge how many are coming

Sort of thought it would be somewhere in that ballpark. I hope you use OScale instead of OGauge, just kidding. I told Bob to talk to his daughter and grandkids about it. We usually go to train shows and have a good time. I told her that this is way different and would be much better for the kids. Good thing is, we got time.

The stunning enormity and beauty of the NJ Hirailers layout makes it ideal for kids.

I am very excited about attending this event, not only because of the layout, but also  because of the people. Arnold

It really shouldn't be an option since you practically pass right by us (NJ Hi-Railers) anyway. Come visit and have a lot of fun.

Put me down for two (my daughter and I).
It is our 35 Wedding Anniversary and my Wife has given me permission to go (Great Wife!)
We will be coming back that day early in the morning from a couple of days Anniversary Celebration out of town.

I love it when a plan comes together!  Saw this notice just before making our flight reservations.  Added an extra day to the trip so Lynley and I will be attending.  What a great way to cap off York Week and to celebrate the hobby and the magazine that brought us all together.  It's going to be a week long PARTY!!

And what makes it better is we will be visiting our daughter in Philly on Saturday, so we will stay overnight in Philly and have a shorter drive to Paterson than it would be from York.  Then after the party we'll stay in Philly again and head to BWI Monday morning for our afternoon flight home.  PERFECTION!

This will work for the wife and I. We had hoped to make the trip this past January but had to cancel because of the bad weather. To see a great layout and celebrate OGR's birthday plus meet a lot of the people from the forum wil be  great..................Paul 2

I'm still after my coworker Bobby. He just had knee surgery last Wednesday and is on the mend. He should come around because he likes seeing all sorts of stuff. I got to send in my RSVP this week so I don't forget to.

I plan to be there on Sunday (my first visit to that fabulous layout). My spouse, Wendy, may or may not be with me. . . it's too early yet to tell what her work schedule will be, plus we have another grandson on the way and due soon.
