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

Hi Ben,

There is an important question I have, and it looks like now is a good time as any to bring it up.

As a good deal of people know and brought up recently, there is bad weather predicted to hit for Saturday.  How soon will the word be announced if Trainstock will be postponed to another date or (dare I say it) cancelled?

Would be great if it was postponed but would be a shame if was cancelled completely for this year.

T-48 hours to train stock. Looking forward to seeing you all.

trainstock will not be postponed   its going to flurry

Hello everyone brand new member and 1st post Woo Hoo .

I am definitely going to try and make the Trainstock event and wondered if this is more an "adult" event or is it kid friendly like last week's show?  I made it out to the HiRailers HQ w my 3 year old in the back all ready to further his burgeoning interest in the hobby but he FELL ASLEEP on the way and I couldn't get him up so that was unfortunately a bust.

I've enjoyed lurking on the site for a while now and am excited to be a full fledged member as I rediscover a lost love of my childhood that's been dormant for many many years (and BOY how the hobby has changed).

I look forward to hopefully meeting many of you tomorrow.

LeighL,

Its a little bit of both, the show is for Forum members and their F&F in the hobby. We allow OGR forum members to rund trains on the layout and have reserved two lines for you all that decided to bring your items with you. We have Legacy / TMCC and DCS on the reseved lines. I would say that for the most part this is more or adults only type of event, not the day for strollers, etc or little ones but bring them if you desire as they are always welcome.

Welcome to the forum!  It's the best online resource to discuss the hobby!

Expanding on what Kevin stated earlier, about 99% of the attendees of our public shows are families with young kids.   For Trainstock it's almost the opposite as 95% of the attendees are adult hobbyists. 

If you click on the link below my signature, we have photo albums on our website of past Trainstocks.   These will give you an idea of the "feel" of Trainstock versus a public show.    As Kevin stated, kids are always welcome as they are the future of our hobby!  I hope to meet you tomorrow.

My son and I had a great time this morning!!  We have about a 2 hr drive so we needed to get going relatively quickly due to the impending weather but we’re so glad we came!!!  What an incredible layout...  and hosts!!  Thank you very much and I hope to see you next year!

Another great Trainstock. Thanks guys for that tribute to members who have passed on & especially the words that we’re spoken about Marty Fitzhenry.

See you all at the Big E next week.
