Milwaukee convention report

Anthony Thompson <thompson@...>

An amazing observation was made at the Milwaukee NMRA convention last week. Only a single individual wearing the traditional "vest" with a patch collection was spotted. Either the fun poked at vesties has caused them to retire those garments, or maybe the older crowd which favored them has passed on. But the days when masses of NMRA members were synonymous with vest wearing appear to have passed.
