Larry Kline asked me to post this. This looks like a great event.

Prototype Modelers Seminar - East 2001

1:00 PM Friday, March 23 through
6:00 PM Saturday, March 24, 2001
Holiday Inn, Monroeville (Pittsburgh), PA, (Exit 6, PA Turnpike)

This meet is a follow on to the Prototype Modelers Seminar held in
Baltimore, Maryland last March 31st and April 1st.

Activities will begin on Thursday evening, March 22 with operating sessions
at Bob Prehoda's HO scale Huntington Northern and Larry Kline's O scale
Western Maryland-Pittsburgh and West Virginia Bowest Interchange.

Several prototype oriented layouts will be open on Sunday, March 25th
including the Western Pennsylvania Model Railroad Museum's spectacular HO
scale Pittsburgh to Cumberland B&O, WM and P&LE layout (August 2000 Model
Railroader), Neal Schorr's Pennsylvania Railroad Middle Division, Bob
Prehoda and Larry Kline.

The model display and vendor rooms at the hotel will be available for setup
at 9:00 AM on Friday, March 23. There will be plenty of display space so
bring your models, including in-progress projects. The model display room
will be open throughout the meet. There will be no talks scheduled during
the hour after lunch on Saturday so that everyone can get together in the
model display room.
