April 26, 2010

We set up the modular layout at the GSME show in Batavia in March along with the Rochester Area S Gaugers. Don Webster and Roger Huff brought their straight sections and RASG brought their corners and straights. Don displayed his “S” scale model of the Buffalo Lehigh Valley Terminal. Pictures of the station are on our website www.WNYSSA.com/ along with pictures of the layout.

Don also displayed the “S” scale swimmers and bathers that he has available for sale. Contact him if you are interested in buying a set (or more). Pictures of the swimmers and bathers are also on our website.

The new “L” catalog is online (http://www.lionel.com/) and should be available from dealers soon. The Flyer highlights… a Defender set… Denver and Rio Grande Alcos and passenger cars… new dome and baggage cars… new rolling stock…

Roger Delthony with RASG is putting together a possible roadtrip to visit the Susquehanna S Gaugers annual “Steam-up” on May 22 or 23. You may have read about their previous events where they have set up auto-controls to run several trains with reverse loops and have run 140+ cars behind various Northerns. If anyone is interested in going, let Roger (rpd5@earthlink.net) or Gregg (gmummert@hotmail.com, 716-866-2989) know as soon as possible. Also, let us know if you are able to drive – passengers will contribute gas $$. Once we have a headcount, we will confirm times and meeting points, etc. The Steam Up is in the Williamsport, PA area, which is about 3 hours from Western NY.

Dave Blaufuss advised that the Buffalo Bisons are giving away replicas of the Central Terminal at their August 5th game. Anyone interested in a WNYSSA night at the ballfield? Tickets range from $7.50 to $11. Maybe we can get tickets in Dave’s section! Let Gregg know if you are interested in attending.

Several members attended the recent TCA meet in York, PA, and found some treasures for their collections and layouts.
