Re: PC: We're PC Society Convention bound


I can't tell for sure what your time frame is, but here's an idea for you...

As you enter Pittsburgh on PA Rt. 22, plan to head out of Pittsburgh on PA
65 North past Conway Yard.  When you get to Rochester, PA, take Rt. 51 North
(Chippewa) and at the second traffic light past the bridge over the Beaver
River (Quik-Fill gas station on the left of a 'T' intersection...  first
traffic light has a bank with a time/temperature clock), take a RIGHT up and
over the hill and back down again staying to the right against the Beaver
River the entire time.  The second house from the bottom of the hill (a
half-dozen houses past the Fallston Fire Station and Boro Building) is The
FALLSTON FLAGSTOP Railfan B&B (otherwise identified as my house).

Stop here for awhile!  Pull in my driveway or go under the CSX overpass
(just past me on the sharp curve) and pull into the Beaver Valley Yacht Club
'Guest Parking' (upper drive) on the opposite side of the CSX (ex-P&LE)

CSX is in my backyard, and Norfolk Southern is directly across the Beaver
River.  Both mainlines are IN FULL VIEW here.

I can have the coffee pot on and you can hang out on the Porch for whatever
amount of time you have available.

Leaving here, PA Rt. 51 BECOMES Ohio Rt. 14 which heads straight for Salem,
OH.  From there you can find your way to Minerva...  particularly if you
know the short-cut dog-leg from the est end of Salem on County Rd. 400.

You will not take yourself significantly out-of-route, and you'll definitely
get lots of of prototype action along the way.

Hope you can make the stop!

I hope to see a bunch of you in Cleveland Thursday. I know I'll see Dave
Hopson, Chip Syme and few other guys tomorrow at Chip's.

We're hitting the road from Connecticut tonight. We're going to head west to
Altoona, watch trains for a bit, then head up through Cresson, then catch 22
west to Pittsburgh for daybreak. Then we'll be on to Chip's.

Thursday before the convention I figure we'll hit Berea and Collinwood.

Have a safe trip all!
