June 2020 Meeting
Our regular 3rd Saturday meeting was held June 20 from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at Larry's barn.
Given the uptick in Covid cases in Florida, everyone who attended wore a mask, and we had 3 doctors and two medical professionals among us. Refreshments consisted of individually wrapped snacks and bottles/cans of beverage. Thanks to everyone who brought stuff, the food was bountiful !!
This was supposed to be the opening night of our great "Make Trax to Jax" annual TCA convention, may it RIP. Mark indicated that a "virtual" highlights video from the convention would be forthcoming.
Many guys wore a hat and/or shirt that celebrated some aspect of Jacksonville: CSX, Jaguars, Shrimp, TPC, whatever.
Fellows brought their favorite train car or loco or accessory that represents Jacksonville or the North Florida region. Lloyd brought his model of Maxwell House Coffee Roasters in Jacksonville, the only commercial operation of its kind remaining in the US. Beautiful Seaboard E-8s hand-painted by Larry and Jose made their debut. And two "younger generation" model rail enthusiasts were present and running trains, Cashel and Connor. It was great to see the gorgeous D56 water tower (some are still available) and the 6-pack of 2020 TCA S reefers on Larry's layout.
