Chick has let me know that he may not be able to make it to Gaithersburg on
Saturday May 7. While I have all of the modules covered, I need someone to haul
the trailer. The Gaithersburg folks are very excited to have us and would be
very disappointed if we had to cancel for anything other than weather. I will
not be able to make it to the April meeting. For those interested:
-One day show, Saturday May 7 from 10am – 8pm. Set up likely @ 8am. WILL BE
CANCELLED IF WEATHER IS NOT FAVORABLE! This is a one day, OUTDOOR show. 20×20
-Located at 9 S. Summit Ave, Gaithersburg MD 20877. Easy access off I270 and
I370. This is the Community Museum located in the historic 1884 B&O Railroad
Station complex. The station has a coffee shop and the freight house contains
the community museum.
-Outside the museum and surrounding our layout will be the 1918 #14 2-8-0 steam
locomotive, C&O Bay Window caboose and B&O RDC Budd Car, all recently restored
to near mint condition. Our layout will be between the RDC car and the CSX
(ex.B&O) Metropolitan Sub. Plan on around 20-40 trains passing by throughout the
day. The caboose and RDC car will be open to the public. Large street fair in
the evening. I would anticipate light crowds during the day for “Train Day” and
significant crowds for the evening street fair and 5K race. FYI, roads
surrounding the station will be closed early afternoon until approx. 8pm. The
museum is planning a nice event for kids with music, crafts and more. We will be
the star attraction!
Again – I NEED A TRAILER HAULER! I’ll offer an extra perk: if you haul the
trailer, I’ll buy you lunch and I’ll be forever grateful!
