Just wanted to update everybody that donated   This is the first time I have used GoFundMe and might be my last   It has been a nightmare trying to withdraw the funds but I believe after about 100 emails and conversations it is finally in the process  I have closed the account so it will not accept anymore donations.  The Toy Train Museum wont discuss the designs until they get a check   So hopefully as soon as it hits the club account our esteemed Treasurer Al will cut a check and send it on its way to Pennsylvania.  Still hoping the dedication ceremony in October will be doable.  I will continue to update everybody as we go.

Thank you thank you thank you to all that have donated to this

Moving along  The Museum sent me a suggested layout   The bricks are not staggered as we had thought before  They are straight and in line   The layout they sent was way too busy and Marty's name was lost in a bunch of graphics and too small 

This is what they sent back

 I modified theirs and came up with this   I sent it back to them and will wait to hear

Just wanted to update everybody. The museum has received our check in the amount of $5225.  I updated the design to include Marty’s TCA number. They have advised me that all lettering will be the same font and the same size as a requirement of the brick manufacturer. We should be on schedule to have this done well before October york. I am planning to request a time to schedule a small dedication ceremony.   I was thinking the Thursday before the Friday opening of york at about 3 pm. What are your thoughts 

Looks very nice Ben, he was a friend to many. Not surprised by the Go Fund Me requirements, they were burned a few times and have gotten stricter.

That the TCA wouldn't work with you until they have the cash in hand is disheartening. Not like we expected them to engrave the bricks ahead of time. Looking forward to images whenever it is finally completed.
