Train Slide Show # 5 – Saturday

Hey everyone, a little news for you today… Action Hobbies is hosting Slide Show #5, this time it’s on Saturday. It’s always a good time, and there’s guaranteed to be some interesting shots in this one. Try and get out there if you can!

Hello friends

Saturday, April 28th, 2012 @ 6pm – Action Hobbies hosts Historical Train Slide Show #5

Free admission!

Featured in this edition of the slide show will be the photos of Aleks Stefanovic. One of southern Ontario’s finest rail photographers, Mr. Stefanovic will be traveling to visit us from Brantford, Ontario. His rail photography spans several decades, dating back to the early 1970’s up until the present day. In addition to having covered a wide variety of rail subjects during his travels, Aleks is also an excellent photographer by any standard of the medium. His interest in HO scale model railroading also prompted him to take wide scenic photographs through the years that are excellent representations of railroad scenes, operations, equipment, facilities and general infrastructure across a wide variety of Southern Ontario (and beyond) locales through the years. Aleks will be the sole presenter at this special show. The show will be an analog presentation of all colour slides.

NOTE! the special day and time of this slide show – for the first time, we will be screening on a SATURDAY. This date also allows for an earlier start time of 6PM. Aleks’ show will be approximately 3hrs in length with a break in the middle.

A special announcement will also be made prior to this show regarding an exciting new project Action Hobbies is involved in.

Limited seating available – arrive early!
