East Coast Large Scale Train Show

Although not a Club function, many PGRS members attended the ECLSTS in York, PA March 27 and 28th.  The show featured a large vendor area, an equally large display area for Garden Railway club layouts, and the “Dave Bodnar Stage.”  Dave presented a PowerPoint and demonstration of Aristo-Craft’s new Revolution radio remote control system.  He also demonstrated and explained how to construct many of the unique electronic gadgets he has shared with PGRS. 

During the afternoon some of the ladies went shopping and restaurant scouting.  On the recommendation of the scouts, Friday evening the “group” (Dave and Lois Bodnar, Larry and Janet Marcinko, Charlie and Dee Christ, Alycefaye and Paul Stewart, Sondra and John Wiggins, Justin and Don Rowley, and Bill and Jill Fallecker) went to the White Rose for dinner.  Sometime when you have a chance ask Janet about the huge crab leg, and ask Bill about cooking “on-the-rocks.”  Following an excellent dinner the group formed a convoy and traveled to the local Dairy Queen for dessert.
