Just curious if there are any members near Erie Pa?

So wondering if there are any members near Erie Pa?

Since I don't have a layout yet, would love to be able to run some equipment, learn about ops etc.

I'm in the area, but in the same boat.  I'm working on plans hopefully for summer though.

Oh yeah, what era and route you modeling?

I am planning on NYC as it went through Erie. So mostly steam and first gen diesels. Of course on a hcd. Would be nice to meet up with others to motivate each other. Sort of round robin club.

I'm working on my fictional freelanced shortline Allegheny and Lake Erie in the modern era.  There is a significant lack of local clubs or LHS's with much train stuff.  It makes me think there may be a lack of interest in the area or something.

Haha, I know right. But seeing all the people at the train show at rainbow gardens, such as it is, says something different. I think that most here in the area are closet or lone wolfs like I have been.

I like the idea of your short line. Even like the name. How big you looking at going?

Im planning on a hcd to start small but work into something I can expand.

I'd like to go at least a decent size.  I've been working on a plan to fill a 14x24 area.

I'm in Warren, also a member of LSRHS.  Had the Hickory Valley up there last summer.

Warren Pa or Warren Oh?

My parents live in Marrienville Pa, and I try to get down there quite a bit to visit. So travel through Warren Pa area quite a bit.

I have been to North East LSRHR since I was 9. Grew up in North East. It has come a long way.

WOW!!

Quite the response. Very cool. Surprised to see so many in the "area".

Maybe once things get going, start up a round robin group.

And Jason, yes, I have gone to the Lake Shore museum many times. What specifically are you looking for?

Blue prints.  :D

But short of that, I'd like to at least get some under body shots and maybe some basic dimensions I can scale a drawing off of.
