In reply to Bill's question, I will list the presenters that I know are part of the Frisco group. Some of the presentations by these individuals contain content linked to both roads and some are purely Frisco. I found out, early on, that most attendees are interested in both roads. Here is the list: Bill Pollard Kent Hurley Steven Harvey Paul Slavens John Chambers Ken McElreath I'm glad to see the interest picked up on this thread. I was beginning to get a little nervous. The convention planning team has tried real hard to make this an interesting event for all attendees. We have a diverse mix of presentations for both roads that cover modeling, history, locomotives, freight cars and general interest. I think the overall content is pretty close to being evenly divided between Frisco and MoPac. It is disappointing to see that some of you will not make it, but I understand the scheduling conflicts. If you have been riding the fence, I encourage you to make plans to attend. It is not too late and we do have one-day admission fees for Friday and Saturday for those that can't attend the entire event. For all the former Frisco and MoPac railroaders out there, we will have a special area to shoot the bull on Saturday. This will be held in conjunction with the swap meet. Talkers and listeners will be able to come together for those stories that only railroaders can tell. Let's spread the word on this. I verified the tour with the MNA, yesterday. Everything is a go and all convention attendees are welcome to participate. We plan to car pool from the convention hotel on Friday morning. We will meet in the lobby at 9:00 AM. Also on Friday, Dale Rush at Blair Line will have the doors open to his facility from 9:00 til Noon. This activity will be on an individual basis. You can arrive and depart at your leisure. Maps/directions will be provided. This is going to be a great convention. If you have an interest in either the Frisco, the MP or both, you should make plans to attend.
