Ed, thanks for mentioning this in the weekend update.  I assume that you will be there.  I have rented a house in the area for the week starting on Friday night for both my wife and I, our daughters and my grandchildren (Hershey Park, Sesame Place, The Crayola Factory, the train ride).  I will try to make it over on the weekend and say Hi.

Got it. Family first, but I hope you get to come check it out. I've heard the museum even has some PRR stuff to (blech...lol).

Why would such a prestigious museum waste its time with so much junk from a fifth-tier railroad, anyway? ;D

Thanks, I caught his meaning, my reply was tongue in cheek.

Yes, and I know a bunch of modelers who model that "fifth tier RR" who refuse to buy a certain manufacturer's products because of that statement too.  Stupidity doesn't pay; it just costs.
