York Flyernut Meeting & Firehall Premeets

April 14th, 2009 · No Comments

A special event takes place on Thursday evening during every York Train Show, The Flyernut Meeting. Formerly known as the Gilbert Get-Together, over 100 like minded people who are interested in Gilbert trains and toys attend. This is a “show and tell” session during which attendees display unusual Gilbert items, which are often accompanied by interesting stories about the A. C. Gilbert company.

Though many of the things shown are American Flyer Trains and toys, don’t be surprised by some of the other Gilbert issues shown at the meet, like hair dryers, electric fans and interesting Gilbert paper.¬† This is a twice a year treat that I highly recommend. This spring’s meeting will be held at 8:30 PM Thursday night April 23rd, at the Reliance Fire Hall (yes the same fire station that had so many tables of Amercian Flyer for sale during the premeet.)

Speaking of the Reliance Fire Hall, don’t forget to take in their 100 or so tables of American Flyer for sale Monday through Wednesday. I had a big grin on my face when at my last visit to the Fire Hall sale, I overheard the fellow next to me complaining that the whole place only had American Flyer! A great moment for a usually out numbered Flyer guy! Admission to both of the events is free, so come one, come all!
