trains.com has an excellent event search tool, here:

http://trc.trains.com/events.aspx?page=list

You can filter by state, date, etc.

Whoever manages that Trains.com event tool does a great job ... it's always up-to-date with upcoming events, info link, etc.

Hats off to whomever is at the helm!

I will be there.

Never heard of a Lint set. Plenty of Lint in the dryer filter...

I have heard of Lenz, but I believe that is a DCC system.
