Did anyone here attend this? How was it?

It was a great night, big crowd, very enjoyable, it brought back a lot of memories for me, ammonia trains, bubble cement, keg beer trains and so much more, Brian Solomon can make the most boring and uninteresting photo very interesting all over, who would ever have thought of taking a photo of the old booking office and Fastrack office in Connolly, they where certainly dreary places but Brian captured them on 35mm slide film, superb stuff, 121class doing push/pull, its only a few years ago, but a completely different world now with plastic railcars. Brian is also a great orator which made it a great entertaining night.
