The Barriger National RR Library and the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society will both be there. If you aren't a member of the R&LHS you should be.

New England Steam Corporation will be there. We have lots of great stuff as fund raisers, too. You can also get one of our new tee shirts and join up! We're in "The Better Living Center". Please come by and introduce yourself.

The Barriger Library display has been set-up in the Mallary Complex Section 132. We are giving away a limited number of prints made from photos from the collection on 80# 11x17 paper. There's a nice shot of South Boston on the New Haven that Mr. B took that I expect will be popular.

Also in keeping with Fox animated shows, one of the other vendors has a lighted sign for The Drunken Clam bar from Family Guy. This place has everything.

Further the Barriger Library was able to acquire tonight a book of photos of diesel electric locomotives that were repaired in Altoona, including shots of the cut-up GG1 that fell through Union Station in Washington, DC.

The vendors and staff are all buttoned up for the night waiting for the snowstorm to hit here. Hope to see you at the table this weekend. Be safe if you're coming up to visit.

Take Care
