Humm, looks likely to be a good exhibition this. Are the cars coming from Bruce Weiner's collection as have the pictures? Nice to see the conveyances mentioned, though that comment on them being "...avalible to everyone...." is slightly wide of the mark. But what the heck, they got a mention! That's more than a lot of places will do here in the UK, the very birthplace of the invalid carriage.....

The cars are coming from a variety of sources for this exhibition.
I think Bruce Weiner supplied them with a ton of literature for reference use and that is why all the photos have that credit.
The curator of the Exhibit came to our National Meet and gave me an advance copy of their quarterly publication and showed me a tentative list of what was planned for the exhibition, but until it actually opens, I will not know what exactly is in it!

I will try to post a report of some sort after it opens and I have time to cover it.
