1952 BLS Meet

Lester D. Friend wrote in The Miniature Locomotive, November-December 1952:

We were not home for long before we started off to make a visit with the Pennsylvania Live Steamers out at Ken Souser's home in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Here George Thomas, Percy Pierce and many others showed up for the movies which I had taken in the West of the California live steamers and a fine chat once again on the success of The Miniature Locomotive magazine. We found the club track in Ken Souser's orchard in very fine shape. It is really a fine piece of workmanship and something the P.L.S. can be proud of. It is now in three gauges, 2-1/2 inch, 3-17/32 inch and 4-3/4 inch. They like to have visitors come to their meetings and bring their engines so have this in mind when traveling through this area.
