Tichy Train Group Tour April 2019

posted Nov 5, 2018, 10:27 AM by Robert Rousseau   [ updated Nov 5, 2018, 10:27 AM ]

Hold the date, yes mark your calendar for Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 10 AM for our almost bi-annual Tichy Train Group factory tour. Don Tichy is excited about showing off his factory in Burlington, NC. We will have a sign-up sheet at the Division meetings so we can plan for the head count and arrange car pools. We had fully-subscribed forty participants last time, and two sessions at the 2016 convention were sold out. Many of us worked the 2016 convention and did not get a chance to attend a 2016 tour. This is a great opportunity to see how those parts, decals and kits are made and distributed. Be sure to bring your checkbooks as Don and his wife always have some nice discounts available, and no shipping costs of course. NMRA members only please.
