    I'll have this playing in the work shop all weekend and will be representing Athearn on Sunday at 2:45. See the link below for more information. As an unapologetic New Englander, I'll miss seeing everyone I know in person, enjoying Dunkin Coffee, (they don't make right here in Illinois) and eating some great food but this is certainly better then nothing and best of all, you can get inspired in your layout room.

    Me threes. If I'm not doing anything I'll tune in and see what's going on.

    The problem with all these virtual shows, MRR or not, is that it's tough to sit in front of a monitor for hours to "enjoy" the show. It's like watching a long movie. Towards the end you just keep looking at your watch wondering when the movie will end. :)

    Saw you on the TrainWorld version this week Jim. Planning on watching a few segments for sure but will have it on when I can.

    What is this door prize stuff you speak of?

    Thanks, Ken Jr. did a great job getting that organized for all involved. Athearn donated three Genesis HO locomotives, the new GP7u in BAR, the new SD80MAC in Conrail and the SD70ACe UP #1111.
