Time For York

This is the parking lot at the "Holidome" in York, the site of probably the largest of the "bandit" meets that are held preceding the twice Yearly TCA Eastern Division train meets. This picture was taken on a chilly, cloudy day under threat of showers, and this week conditions are similar, or worse. Many people complain that the the "bandit" meets are shrinking and are now only a shadow of what they once were. I suppose the cause is the usual suspect: online auctions.

This is the ballroom area in side the Holidome. I usually just make a day trip to York in the Spring, but this year I'll be there Wednesday through Friday. I'm looking forward to looking at trains and talking with friends. On Friday the Standard Gauge Module Association will meet for lunch to discuss the upcoming display at Altoona in August. It'll be fun even if the weather is not so great.
