MASON DIXON CLUB COMES FOR A VISIT
AUGUST 15, 2010
[home]
As a G scaler, I have belonged to the Mason Dixon Large Scale Railroad Society for 12 years or so, and for
the last 11 years Charlotte and I have hosted the club in late August.  We skipped a year last year, but the
tradition is back.  We also invited a few more of our friends to ride the Calvert Central and enjoy the company
of other railroaders.
Art and Lynn live in nearby Rising Sun.  They have a full size caboose, an
American Flyer layout, and a new G scale layout.  They are certainly enjoying
themselves here!
Joe was wise enough to bring a rain pancho.  It came in real handy because
the predicted sunshine turned out to be rain.  Behind him are Conner and
Charlotte.
Lee is driving his wife Mary around the railroad.  I wonder what gesture she is
making with her hands. It looks like "I want to wring his neck!"
With the horses grazing in the background, Lee and Joe have a big smile for
the camera.  The horses wanted to meet everybody but sorry, not today.
THREE JOES - Lee and Joe cruise past a small crowd at the crossing.  That's
Lynn, Manny, Jim, Lee, Joe, Charlotte, Joe, and Joe.  A fourth Joe was here last
week.
PROTECTION FROM THE RAIN - One of the three Joes brought this nice
easy-opening awning.  We placed it in front of the shed so we could have a
meeting.
MEETING IN THE SHED - We had our meeting inside the nice dry train
shed.  That's Joe's leg, Conner, Robin, Jim, Marie, Mary, and half of Lee's
head.
JUST STOPPING BY - Later that week our friend Rhea dropped by, and of
course Charlotte took her for a train ride.
PROGRESS HALTED - until Piney decided to move after a lot of urging from
Charlotte.
