Hi Everyone,

NMRA Train Show is just around the corner.

It is Nov. 5 & 6 and held at the Upper Valley Mall, 1475 Upper Valley Pike in Springfield.

The show is located in the former Elder Beerman store located behind the Sears store.

SET UP will be on Nov 4 at 1:30pm, we are going to be located in the loading dock area at the south end of the store. We will have the loading dock doors and a side door right beside our layout so it will be easy moving in and out.

There will be no need for carts or wagons because we are located right at the doors. The area is long and narrow but have some ideas for the set up.

We are going to be restricted on the number of chairs available so if you are coming to the show on Sat and Sun you may want to bring a lawn chair.

ALSO, be sure to wear your name badge. I would suggest bringing a sweater or layering some warm clothes (not sure how warm that area will be with the weather fluctuation)

For those who are running trains you can unload them at the south side door by the loading dock.

Show starts at 11:00 Sat and Sun morning.

The MVGRS Memorial
The MVGRS Memorial was designed and built from scratch by Art Gebele in 1997.
Art built the memorial to recognize members of the Miami Valley Garden Railway Society and the Greater Cincinnati Garden Railway Society who had passed away. The initials of the deceased member are added to the left side of the memorial for the Greater Cincinnati Garden Railway Society and to the right side for the Miami Valley Garden Railway Society.
In 2004, Art donated the memorial to the MVGRS. The memorial is included as part of each display the MVGRS presents.
A Photo of the Memorial is located at the bottom of each Web Page located though out the MVGRS Web Site.
