    Born an raised in Akron, Firestone Park Area, Father spent 38 yrs. with Firestone T & R, never knew this group existed, been in central Florida since 72, sure is nice HERE, about December. Anyway will be in central Pa. 25-27 of MAY FOR THE 765. Riding coach class the 25th, stumbled on yer site here thru theirs. I do the Goat Line myself in G-Scale, call it the Empire 2 Line, that’s the Great Northern RR, like the history and paint scheme, you can see it on YouTube, just enter Empire2Line an watch the video. Will be wearing my GN Colors riding on the 25th and chasing 765 on the 26th, drive a blue Caravan says “Do Or Die Gas Eater Wish I was a Dash 9 44CW across the windshield, an has 5 air horns mounted (hidden) under the hood. So if any of you are there, look for me. Byron
