Kevin J. Davis, the LCCA  FasTrack Modular Railroad Coordinator, is creating a Special treat for attendees at York!  Thanks to his efforts, the foyer of the Orange Hall will boast an operating FasTrack Modular Layout for us to enjoy.  As far as I know, this is the first time there has ever been a layout running at the front of Orange Hall where you can try out the modular railroad experience. Thank you Kevin and the Eastern Division!

Kevin says  you are welcome to  bring an engine to run on the layout to pull his consists. The idea here  is to give you a taste of just how much fun a modular layout can be to operate with your own locomotives.  I am bringing a favorite GP7 to polish those FasTrack Modular rails.

What was the official Atlas report at the meeting, engine delivery future models etc, it would appear that based on the  "museum" reports Atlas is still having issues with engine production with a June projected delivery for its first engine this year. Just saying!

Thank you OGR for a great meeting today! Lots of fun and good to meet the sponsors.

Too bad Mike Reagan never got his standing ovation. Some of us were trying to stand up, but it takes us a little longer these days.


I agree with George, great meeting!  Lots of excellent information!  Thank you OGR; thank you Ed Boyle!

George, it was great meeting you!
