Winter 2022 TCA e*Train 

e*Train Issue: Jan 2022   |   Posted in:

Vol.21 No.1

There has been a lot of activity in and around the TCA over the past few months.  While some venues remain closed, others have been opened.  York, under the auspices of the Eastern Division, opened its doors in October to over 9,800 individuals both TCA and the Public.  Meetings were held and trains were traded and sold.

The enjoyment encompassed in our hobby continues to grow.  Children are enthralled and adults are mesmerized.  Burn the midnight oil and read through each and every word, or just sit back and read a single story.
