Take a Look at the 2019 NYCSHS
From registration to the end of the Train Show the
attendees had a wonderful time.
Here are some photos of some of the events
Attendees leave the train for the Mediana Train Museum.
Nothing like a train of lightning stripe cars!!
These beautiful E’s are just rusting away but they look great at the museum.
They attracted the attention of most of the attendees.
The train layout was running NYC trains for us. A very impressive layout and a great museum.
A grand old lady that is slowly falling apart, but the volunteers there are very busy trying to restore her to her previous grandeur.
Some shots of the interior waiting room. You can’t help but be impressed with the faded beauty of this structure and the enormous job ahead of the preservation organization.
All of the above photos by Noel Widdifield.
The Wonderful Large Scale Railroad of Mike Leonard
was on display for the attendees on Friday afternoon.
Take a look!!!

An Aristocraft RDC-3 modified with custom parts by Tom Ball of Forked River, NJ as a tribute to engineer pilot, Don Wetzel and the NYC Railroad. Ownership of this 1/29-scale model passing from former NYCSHS director, Bill Strassner to Noel Widdifield. Noel purchased the model and Nick Ariemma brought it to the Convention for Noel and Bill.
It will go to start running on Noel’s 1/29-scale layout. All involved had hoped that Don would be in attendance to see the model.
