York TCA 2018 Recap

Life achievement unlocked! We attended the TCA York meet in York, PA this past week which was my first (and likely not last) York TCA meet.  We flew up Wednesday evening and attended the meet Thursday and Friday, and we had an absolute blast. It was certainly an experience, never have I seen so many O gauge trains in one place across all walks (new / used / pre-war / post-war).  Highlights from the show include:

  • Met and had a chat with Mike Wolf from MTH
  • Met and chatted with various vendors, forum members, other hobbyists that I’ve gotten to know over the years
  • Deals on locomotive and rolling stock
  • Ideas for layout scenery and buildings

All told, we stayed within budget and ended up coming home with a moderate take:

  • JT’s MegaSteam Smoke Fluid
  • Replacement Bulbs for MTH passenger cars
  • Pewter Figures
  • Lionel Standard Gauge #312 Observation Car
  • MTH Premier Continental Grain Covered Hopper + MTH Club Membership
  • MTH Premier Southern Tank Car
  • MTH Premier Savannah & Atlanta Caboose
  • MTH Premier BNSF SD70ACe

Here’s a few photos of the new rolling stock:
