Trying to "decipher" some of the Lionel product in that last pic.

If anybody gets a chance today, please ask Ryan and/or any Lionel reps about their new Amtrak releases (those beyond the ones that were in 2021 Vol 2). They have teased some new anniversary locos and maybe even passenger sets.

Thanks!

I spoke to Lionel on Thursday in reference to upcoming Lionel Amtrak products. They are waiting for detailed information and blueprints from Amtrak. Hopefully, we should know more when the catalog drops in  January.

This was my first York show and I was very pleased with everything.  I don't have anything to compare it to, but it seemed well attended.  I came with a list of some things I was hoping to find and I pretty much found everything I was looking for.  I went through all the halls, some quicker than others as I was only there for 1 day.  It seemed like the member halls were very busy.  My favorite hall was the purple dealer hall.  It was laid out well and had a nice selection of products.  The layout there was very nice.  I enjoyed visiting the "Just Trains" booth and talking with Pete.  They always have a great selection of MTH products.  I also chatted with Ed of Ed's Trains.  He always has a great assortment of Corgi diecast trucks and busses.  I found some things I was looking for in the Orange Hall after going back through a second time.  Overall it was a great show and I had a great time!

How about some of these? Yeah, I snagged a picture of Ryan. I teased him a bit about the B6 at the Railroad Museum of PA being restored. I'm going to see if Ryan will pop the case off so I can take pictures of the backside or if he is will to suggest any alternatives to taking weird shots. Maybe he will, maybe he won't.

C833367B-73B0-4174-819F-F5455E1A1284Great to have York once again after being cancelled 3 times. Lot of planning and execution on EDTCA’s part. Still great to York regardless of no show vendors, etc. Just great to see folks from the country there!!
I was glad to be there after a life- threatening event 5 weeks ago having single heart artery bypass surgery and I made it to York and I felt physically great feeling the best in a year’s time.

Ted,  It was great to finally meet you in person.  I enjoyed seeing all of the OGR friends.

Had a blast! Here are some of my pictures from York.

-Chris (RBP Trains)

Chris, you, Jason, Sean & company really added to the fun of York. It was great chatting with you all, and it really shows that the hobby itself still is alive and well.

One of the most interesting things to me on your channel was the Weaver video that you posted I think Thursday or Friday night. It should be reassuring to others that love older engines getting a second life with upgrades. I myself have a Weaver engine, Canadian Pacific #2860 Royal Hudson that I have yet to get upgraded. I did see some other Weaver engines and rolling stock at York, but I was hunting for that elusive Dreyfuss Hudson from Lionel, which I struck out.

That aside, the good news is I spent my money on more MTH Madison Passenger Cars increasing my small NYC fleet and some Atlas Reefers. If I found the Dreyfuss, chances are I would not have purchased those. I can't wait to see your new videos coming out. Funny thing is, they started showing up in my YouTube feed the beginning of October. Must have been the train Gods.

@Dave NYC Hudson PRR K4, great meeting you as well! The comradery was my favorite memory of the Meet.

And regarding the Weaver video, I have really been enjoying those Brass Engines that they produced years ago. They are so unique and it is really fun to watch them come to life with the modern electronics! RJ has yet to come back and pick up that Tennessean so I think I will just keep running it on his behalf, haha!

Have a great Thanksgiving! - Chris
