“First Thursday” Open House is this week, June 5th, 5pm – 9pm.
“Second Saturday”, June 14th, will be an especially busy day for the GMLTC! Some of us will be in Chicago for Brickworld, some of us will be at Brickmania for the Open House (10am – 4pm), and some of us will be at the new Target Field Station for the grand opening of the Green Line light rail! We’ll have our model of the Target Field Northstar train and platform, Steve’s “Blue Line” (Hiawatha) light rail train, and maybe even a Green Line train as well. We’re also working on a new holiday ornament with the Green Line livery, we’re packing them up soon and hope to be selling them on the 14th, both at Brickmania and at Target Field Station. Hope to see you there, or there, or there!
Note for those of you driving to Brickmania: Central Ave is now closed between 14th and 18th. MNDOT and the BNSF are replacing the railroad bridge over Central Ave just south of the Thorp Building, they will have the road closed for several months. If you’re used to driving up Central Ave from Broadway Ave or downtown Minneapolis, you’ll need to detour. Good alternate routes on the weekend include University Ave, Monroe Street, or Johnson Street.
