"friend" us on Face Book
by Richard Glueck
August, I had the great good fortune to once more head over to Canada,
for the Quebec Society of Model Railroaders large scale open house.
Among the attendees were only three U.S. citizens. "No matter how
hard I try to attract Americans", said my friend Ron Pelletier, "they
always tell me the border is a hassle, and they don't want to go
through it." And you know, that's too bad, because the people are
great, the layout is fun, the food terrific, and the other sites for
wives and family are unparalleled in North America.
I had no problem
crossing from Maine into Canada. In fact, it's a trip I try to make
at least twice a year; once for Quebec Live Steamers and once for
Montreal live steamers. I've been thinking about it, and perhaps I
can offer others some advice for visiting our colleagues on the "other
side of the border" (no matter which way you travel).
