Riverside 2014 Fall meet

As I had a number of parts to pick up for the Berkshire and anted to get some first hand information direct form the horses mouth. I decried to have a holiday in CA when the Riverside fall meet was on. This is Jim Kreiders home track and the high point of this meet for me was there would be 3 of Jim's Berkshires running. Also of some note is the Riverside club is steam only

Everyone at the club made me vary welcome and pulled my leg either about my lack of teeth, implants on the way! Accent; it seems now everyone thinks we talk like we live in Downton Abby not the North East. I also got some very kind comments about the 25 build and all in all was made to feel very welcome by everyone I met
