That was the question for the evening at our pre-opening reception. Did I do a good job explaining? Probably not, but I handed out some literature in the form of the newspaper from the Steampunk World’s Fair held on May 20-22, 2011 and did my best elevator pitch. The more I learn, the harder it is to explain. From now on, I’ll have to say that it is an experience and leave it at that. No. My pitch has to improve.
It had been a frustrating week trying to get everything together. But, in the end, it was great to have a chance to meet and talk to people in advance of the “official” opening. Both featured artists were there – Angelica Temoche and Jason Edwards which was wonderful.
Our opening is October 1, during the weekend of Brunswick, Maryland’s 28th Annual Railroad Days! There will be an excursion train running between Brunswick and Harper’s Ferry on both days. I understand that tickets will be available in Harper’s Ferry at the Tenfold Fair Trade shop as well as in Brunswick.
I visited the Brunswick Railroad Museum a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised with it. The best part was the model railroad. A Harper’s Ferry addition is in progress.
It’s a good time. I recommend the event highly. After you visit Harper’s Ferry, of course.
