Hi Ya'll;

     As I have told you, I am the President and Chairman of the board of a RailRoad Museum and Modeling Society. We recently had our first train show since Covid hit our country. Well, the final numbers are in and we are totally shocked.We beat the numbers from our last spring show( April-2019) by almost 500 adults and 150 children Paid. I guess folks really wanted normal even with Space and Mask Request restrictions. WOW!!

Very glad to hear it!

 

Couldn't agree more. So nice to hear something positive after the past year or so we have all had.

Not to mention just knowing that folks still like trains. You know what I mean, TB. Because we just do.

Yes it's great to know. My new office is on the third floor of a building directly across from and facing the Salinas train station.

Not quite as exciting as my office in the 80's on the 17th floor of Maritime Plaza in SF, but a close second.

Good news for your group.  Yep, people just want to get out and do something, anything.  There was a full house at a recent prospecting event we went to.
