Bucyrus Model Railroad Association Train Show and Swap Meet (2023)
Posted by chatanuga on Tuesday, April 11, 2023 7:31 PM

I used to be a member of the Bucyrus (Ohio) Model Railroad Association from the summer of 1988 to around March 1994, when I left for multiple reasons. I'd been thinking of visiting the club during one of their open houses but have never been able to make it up there when they're open. This year, I was able to make it up and got to see the club's layout for the first time in 29 years.

Chapters:

0:00:00 - Driving north on US 23 to Bucyrus and talking about my time with the club.

0:14:46 - Spotting a southbound intermodal train approaching on Norfolk Southern, catching it at the next crossing, and then driving to the fairgrounds.

0:24:36 - Talking about what I thought of the swap meet.

0:35:35 - Video tour of the layout with a voiceover by me talking about the changes since I'd been a member.

0:54:30 - Still pictures and a couple cell phone videos of the layouts with me talking about my views on the club and the hobby.
