green 12

Hello Everybody

I have been getting alot of inquiries for this years OGR Forum Meeting at the NJ HiRailers club in PAterson NJ.  For those that have never heard the term before its a day of Peace and Trains with some pretty good food. The date will be Saturday January 18,2020.  Start time is 10 am and the stop time is whenever anybody wants to leave.  This party is open to all OGR forum members and their family and friends. We charge $7.00 an adult person just to cover some of the cost of the food.  We have a pretty good time and anybody can bring their trains to run on our layout.  Just let me know how many are coming in your party and I will make sure we have enough food and drink for you  The Address is 185 6th Ave Paterson  NJ 07524 3rd floor  

 

We will be raffling off a number of cars at the event. 

 

BTW the NY City subway heard this is our 12 year of doing this and had a special number 12 train run down the rails

One of the best train events EVER!! Anyone who is on the Forum and is within a couple of hundred miles really ought to try to attend. I attended for many years, but am now in Florida for the winter. I truly miss Trainstock. Have fun.

Barring blizzards, count me in.

Plenty of decent hotels within a 15-20 minute drive if the weather is bad! Or bring a sleeping bag  - plenty of spots to make yourself cozy for a night under the layout!

Hats off to the NJ HiRailers, for hosting another grand event with trains and food and fellowship.  

Thanks for the straight line Tom!

Our annual hat is about to be delivered and will be available for purchase at Trainstock for $15.  This year's logo is in honor of the special train that the NYCTA ran to recognize Trainstock 12.   Or maybe it's just a fantasy scheme.  Yours to decide!

Hope to see you all there on the 18th!

Cool hat!  Have to add that one to the collection.

Ben,

I will be there to cause my usual trouble. We also need to have a moment of silence and/or tribute to Marty Fitz! Looking forward to seeing all my friends.

Ben. I almost forgot about it. The post seems lost and not out front or on top. Hopefully Ed and I will be there.

 

Forget hopefully, WE'LL BE THERE (unless of course, there is a major storm)

Maybe 1 or 2 others will join us, but not sure!

Thanks for hosting this great event... something to look forward to after the Holidays.
