Once again, it is nearing time for the 2013 mini-meet for the western members of the Santa Fe Railway Historical and Modeling Society. This year we will again be holding the mini-meet at the Santa Fe Depot in San Bernardino on Saturday, February 16, 2013. As before, we will have several well known speakers, sales tables, and lots of trains to see just outside our window.
We are again the guests of the San Bernardino History and Railroad Museum, plus this is the home of our Western Archives. Steve Shaw, President of the San Bernardino History and Railroad Museum, and his staff have gone out of their way to make our day a good one. Charlie Schultz, Archivist of the Western Archives will also be available for any questions.
