York Flyernut Meeting

April 11th, 2019 · No Comments

For many years a special event has taken place during the York Train Show, The Flyernut Meeting. Tonight’s meeting of about 100 Flyer enthusiasts was largely focused on variations of Circus cars, especially the flat car that carried the cages, the cages and the animals.

Having never owned a circus set, I had no idea that there was so much to know about them. A couple of the people presenting had recently purchased on eBay pre-production prototype flat cars, that were actually hand lettered. One gentlemen boosted that he owned about 40 different cages, that he has been collecting for about 10 years. I was reminded that this is a very diverse hobby, that even the smallest details you can make a career of studying them! A good time was had by all!
