Division Meet & Train Watching
Sunday May 16, 2021
2:00 - 4:00PM
This is near the site of the former NY Central/Amtrak station.
12” = 1’ Railroad: CSX Railroad and Amtrak will offer a clinic on modern
railroading, including a demonstration of freight car weathering and a
state of the art intermodal facility.
Photo opportunities will be provided at no additional charge.
Dress for the weather, bring a chair, snacks and non-alcoholic beverage
if you like, and please wear a face covering to keep us all safe.
Division Business: We will likely discuss plans for meeting during the rest of 2021, the picnic, and other items of interest.
Calendar: We were unable to visit several layouts last year, including joint meets
with the Lakeshores and Hudson-Berkshire divisions.
It is hoped that conditions will improve sufficiently to reschedule
some of these events, but all this is still quite tentative.
Now that the weather has improved, most events will be outdoors until Fall.
Model Showcase: We know you’ve been working on your trains during
the pandemic shutdown. Bring a few models to show us what you’ve been doing.
If they are already attached to your layout, bring a photo or two.
We want to see what everyone has been up to during these times of forced isolation.
As always, use your best judgement regarding your degree of
comfort and participation, and stay home if you feel ill.
Location Tractor Supply, 6641 Manlius Center Road, East Syracuse, NY 13057.
