Hello all,
I received this link/notice through my Facebook this after noon. I thought I would share with the group.

I'm going. I got a flyer about this with Rollsign about a month ago.
Oh, I bet you read a lot of Gordon Wood, huh? You read your Gordon Wood and you regurgitate it from a textbook, and you think you're awesome doing that and how 'bout them apples and all that Gordon Wood business?

Is this the same thing that happened in Wakefield last year? Or is this something different?

The Trolley Meet was in Wakefield in 2010. Other train shows use the same place, so you must be thinking of something else for 2011.

The venue will be at Holiday Inn 1500 Beacon St Brookline MA. Take the C Cleveland Circle via Beacon St to the meet. Didn't see any fan trips or trips to Seashore or Branford usual run on Sunday of the meet.

If I come in from Riverside, can I cross from inbound to outbound at Kenmore to get the C without paying another fare? Been a while since I have been to Kenmore.

This Trolley meet is in Boston on Even years and Philadelphia PA on odd years is how it runs.

Does anyone know if there'll be any good MBTA/MTA ho scale models? I have a few of the Boeing LRVs and two Boston Elevated PCCs, but I'm always looking to expand my collection. :D

Or get off at Longwood, and it's about a half-mile walk to the Holiday Inn.

The first night was quite successful, there was a good "crowd" there! I will be working there tomorrow morning. I will be the guy right in front with the MBCR cap, feel free to say hello!
