An update on ECLSTS 2020

I spoke with Dan at Star Hobby, and he confirmed that the show will be at the Timonium, MD state fairgrounds on

13 and 14 March 2020.

The new venue and dates are on the ECLSTS web site, but he had not yet had a chance to change all the York graphics

He is working on hotels to find a good rate, and I will try to keep in contact with him in that regard.

Hi Jerry;

I attended Steve King's battery/steam-up in Rocky Mount, VA yesterday. While there, I had a chat with Jim Stapleton regarding live steamers at the new venue. Jim used a very colorful term for the State of Maryland, and informed me that the state has some strange ideas and regulations regarding miniature steam apparatus. ( I won't repeat Jim's expression here. I only want to give information and not start a firestorm.) Jim is also concerned that the Fire Marshal having jurisdiction over the fairgrounds may not even allow us to light up in the hall. I thought I had better give the live steam enthusiasts a "heads up." Perhaps things will turn out better than expected.

I have also attached a photo of Jason Kovac's scratch built DeWinton strutting its stuff yesterday.

Best Wishes,
David Meashey

Jim has a very jaundiced view of the State of MD. We had a similar discussion about steam at the B&O RR Museum, as the ride-on guys would bring their trains and a portable track.

Clem ran his Warrior Run layout with many live steamers running in the Cow Palace at the GSTS . I have lots of pics.
