2014 Sn3 Symposium News
- I recently finished scanning some 150 photographs
of the Colorado narrow gauge taken in the 1950s
by John Lydecker (one of our group's father).
These images (action shots, locomotives, cars,
structures and detail shots) have never been
published or even seen by anyone. We've
assembled them into a PowerPoint presentation
that will be JUST ONE PART of our Saturday night
In addition to the Lydecker Collection, there
will be TWO MORE presentations of heretofore
unpublished photograph collections! They will be
digitally presented on two large screens with
plenty of room for everyone to watch comfortably,
drink coffee and eat dessert.
On behalf of Marc and our group please make plans
to come to Dallas-Fort Worth for this great Sn3
Symposium (February 27 - March 1).
You will not want to miss the fine clinics,
vendors, layout tours and our Saturday night

- Going through various odds and ends as I unpack I found not only the cast belt buckle from the fourth (1984)convention in Denver which I was able to attend but one from the second in 1982. I assume after thirty yearsthat I must have been able to buy an extra buckle from the previous convention. My 1984 actually has a serialnumber, the 1982 does not, perhaps because the entire operation was relatively new.I'll keep the 1984, at least for a while, since I was there, but I really don't need the 1982. If some collector outthere would like to add it to his collection, I am open to offers, either swap for narrow gage equipment, books,or always cash.I preregistered for the 1985 or 1986 convention, wherever that was and was early enough to have gotten that beltbuckle as part of the package, but the Air Force wouldn't let me go at the time of the convention, so I imagine someoneelse benefited from the buckle I paid for. C'est la vie. I finally got to go again in 2010 at St Louis (my daughter and herfamily live there) and again the next year in Hickory; I am thinking about Kansas City.
