Since the topic of the PCRRHS in October has been raised
(and I can't make that one) I thought I'd mention a couple
of the clinics that we going to have at our NMRA Midwest
Region Spring Convention near Indianapolis next year. Marvin
Crim has a Penn Central slide presentation of the slides he
shot while PC was still very much alive. Many of hem were shot
in and around Indianapolis and Anderson Indiana. I saw this
two years ago and can't wait to see it again. Talk about a
trip down memory lane! Watching his presentation rolled back
the clock and the memories flooded in.
Pat Sweeney, editor of the Railfans of Indianapolis Railfan
Rambles, has a presentation of shots along every main, branch
and industrial line in Indy, almost grade crossing to grade
crossing in both directions; every possible (and some
not-so-possible) railfan spots in town.
Indianapolis was a Penn Central hot-spot in both activity and
in abandonment as both the NYC and PRR were major players here.
Much of his presentation will show trackage once owned by PC.
And of course, while you're here, you can stop by Anderson
Indiana and take a look at one of the few concrete bridges with
the PC logo molded in (you can see a pix of that at the Railroads
of Madison County website http://madisonrails.railfan.net
We'll hold our convention in Noblesville Indiana at the 4H Expo
Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 27, 28 & 29 2001.
Yes, we're modelers, but we're also railfans as well. For more
information, visit our website at
and take a look at what we are planning. Costs and an application
form will go up in a couple of weeks.
