Model Railroaders Visit GE Transportation Plant

Posted: Updated:
It was a dream come true today for a group of model railroaders.  They got to tour the GE plant in Erie today to see how big locomotives are built.

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.

"You register early because that gives you the first dibs on the trips. This trip, there originally was only one bus, 55 people, and it went immediately.   So, if I waited to register, I wouldn't have been here.   But, through the niceness of the people here, they allowed us to bring two buses," he said.

While in this area, the group also visited the Lakeshore Railway Museum in North East.
