The 2014 Key, Lock & Lantern Convention held in June, 2014 in our new location of Utica, NY was a huge success! Members enjoyed a ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad on Friday night, followed by the railroadiana exhibits and swap meet on Saturday, dinner at the Hotel Utica, and a final social hour at breakfast on Sunday. Perfect weather for train chasing and antique hunting on the way home rounded out a great weekend.
