October 1, 2009

Our September meeting was held at Paul Wachowicz’ home. Ray Abbott, Don Webster, and Gregg Mummert attended.

We discussed plans for the upcoming shows in Cheektowaga and Batavia.

Paul showed use the BTS kits he bought recently including the McCabe MoW speeder and two buildings.

Gregg brought the following for perusing… the latest SHS Update… info on the 2010 Spring Spree in Dearborn, MI… the recent S Scale America catalog… NASG Brick Building Kit order forms… BTS’ MoW Speeder information… prints of S scale building fronts… 2010 TCA convention cars (including the AF Black Label cars)… the recent Micro-Mark catalog…

Emil Suda sent copies of articles and pictures that were circulated including a picture of the old W. T. Grant store at 546 Main Street in Buffalo. Emil asked if anyone remembers a Marx train display (and layout?) in this store?

If anyone is interested in splitting a pair of the TCA Black Label cars, let Paul know as soon as possible. Deadline for the pre-paid order is the end of October.

There were no reports from the ’09 convention in St. Louis or the recent train show at Central Terminal.

Reminder - Dave LaGraves is looking for members to assist in coordinating a Holiday dinner this year. We need to locate a reasonably priced restaurant that can accommodate 15-20(?) people on a Sunday afternoon in December. Contact Dave if you can help make this event happen this year.

The next meeting will be at Paul Wachowicz’ home on WEDNESDAY, October 14, at 6 PM.

Please call Paul to let him know you will be attending. We plan to test and clean up the 4x8 layout and make sure it is ready for the TTOS show on October 25th.

As always, we need volunteers and/or ideas for future meetings.
