Mike's a bit preoccupied today so I'll post this one as a reminder.

One of the exciting new features for the Nscaleweekend (Aug 19-20-21) is the addition of a Friday night (6PM) charter excursion on the Everett Railroad.  It will be diesel-powered out of Hollidaysburg.   Tickets are $16, but as this is a charter - not a normal scheduled run - tickets have to be paid for to Mike (see the nscaleweekend.com website forms) by JUNE 30th (next Thursday).  Mike is taking Paypal so it can be done quickly.

If you haven't been over to the Everett lately and seen the new depot (PRR style) and the passenger car restoration projects underway you're missing something.    B&H 2-6-0 11 is not running the trip primarily due to the much higher ticket price necessary to charter the steam locomotive for a one-trip, one-day event.

Damn, this would be a lot of fun, but I won't be arriving until too late to make it.
