The visitors are members of the National Model Railroad Association. The association is holding its annual convention this week in Cleveland. It's a perfect opportunity for some members to take a short bus trip to Erie to tour the plant. However, organizers did not realize how popular the trip would be. Kevin Feeney, of New Canaan, CT, was one of the first to sign-up.
While in this area, the group also visited the Lakeshore Railway Museum in North East.
