What is the latest on Train Mountain? Are they still running trains this year?

I heard a rumor a few weeks ago that they were beginning to plan Triennial 2012, but there is no update on their website, latest stuff is dated 2010, and nothing new on the Friends of Train Mountain website either.

If anyone has any concrete new news, it would be appreciated. Haven't heard anything regarding the court case of TM club folks vs. Sharon Breen since it was initially filed and various emails went around explaining the situation.

Would be great if someone close to the source could fill us in.

Per the Train Mountain Gazette, the web site is in process of going to a new server, so it's behind in info. But in the Gazette, are the forms for this years meets.

Is the Gazette a paper only and/or members only publication, or something that can be had online?

Thanks,

I believe it is a members only e-newletter, but with a call to the office, one should be able to get a courtesy copy snail mailed, or emailed. Phone # 541....783...3030

To the group,

The Mountain Gazette is a members only publication. As reported Train Mountain is in the transition from one server group to another so things are way out of date on the website. The old server group was very uncooperative with updates etc,. The new group is much better to work with and there are some design changes planned in regards to the website. Hopefully in the not to distant future the website will be much more up todate.

The meets are scheduled out for 2011 and 2012 and I think I may be able to attach it here. Anyhow I will try! :D

The annual winter cleanup has not yet got underway we are still having more winter than spring! :D Lots of pine needle raking and pickup to do before the Narrow Gauge Meet.

Thanks for the "from the source" information...a date is good enough for now, can stick it on the calendar and worry about registration later, as it is still more than a year away.

I was able to open the word doc just fine. :)
