Hi all! I spent today at the Train Show in Syracuse NY. Great Show and very crowded. The high point of my day was to go the booth operated by my LHS and say in a very loud voice, "Heck, I can get all this stuff just as cheap at my Local Hobby Shop!". The owner looked up and just grinned and said, "Hi Ray!" Anyway here are some photos of the show.

Just stepped in the door of the first building and found this sign. A definate must have for my train room. Unfortuately I was going to come back and buy it latter and never did.


There was a lot of collectors items including this beauty.


Probably 30 or more modular layouts in the two buildings including one from my town that just formed and was unknown to me. They were combined with the RIT modular layout and formed one of the largest displays at the show.


Some other shots of the Modular Layouts:




My favorite every year is this logging Layout:





Oh and don't forget, Christmas is coming!


I would have posted these to the WPF thread but I didn't want to hog bandwidth there. Besdies I'll have something for that by the end of the weekend, I hope.

Thanks Ray for sharing your good time. Don't you just love Train shows: the excitement of the crowd, the vendors with their goodies, the clubs displaying their magnificent talents. We all, can thank the many clubs that participate in these shows. They really work hard at presenting the hobby to all.

LOVE the logging train!
