Videos Of Periodic Online Meetings

Members of the SGMA and fellow fans of tinplate and Standard Gauge Trains started meeting on-line when lockdowns and quarantines kept them from meeting at places like York or other trains shows. Many of the meetings have been recorded. If you were not able to attend, or you want to go back and review the presentations, you can click on the links below.

April 2020
This meeting was our first; it was intended to replace the regular SGMA Show & Tell breakfast at Spring York, which did not happen in 2020 due to the pandemic. The agenda was a bit fluid, but we got to see and discuss a lot of great trains.

June 2021
June was the first of the “long meetings”, where we end up going 3 hours or more. This is partly due to being cooped up for a year, but also speaks to members getting more and more comfortable participating in online meetings. At this meeting we got updates from Dave Carse on his future MESG book based on his research and that of Arno Baars. We heard from Kirk Lindvig of USA Track and got to see another nice video from Ash Rajan. Norm Beaver talked about his custom Pennsy
T1 steam loco, and Steve Simon displayed some unique items and talked about a conversion he hopes to do. As always, we had additional show & tell, and much open discussion from members before and after the main agenda. The meeting is recorded in 3 segments to help improve the sub-titles, and to make the content easier to consume.
