I hope to make the Springfield show but an not sure yet, Alan.

The Springfield show is one of the best there is. I went a couple of years ago and had a blast. Meet lots of people, saw lots of cool stuff and ate some decent food on a "business trip" for a change! I also found some out of print books I wanted.

Alan, if you go this year be sure and let me know so I can find you and give you a noogie! I meant to do that in Denver, but I forgot.  ;D

If Skibbie goes we can have "Train Wrestlers II" Should be fun.

If you think I'm gonna leave Florida in the dead of Winter to drive to Springfield, MA, think again. This time of year, there's nothing that could drag me North of Atlanta!  :o :o  ;D ;D

As we speak, it's 61 here in Massachusetts. :)

I expect to be at the Springfield show on Saturday.

The NMRA Hub division is having their annual show this weekend (2nd & 3rd) in Marlboro, MA.  It's a very good show.

John, It is the 27 and 28 of January. The convention is at the same time. By signing up for the convention you also get a exhibator badge which gets you into the show. Here is the link http://www.northeastntrak.org/winterfest/index.html Hope this helps.

I plan on going down to Springfield and staying at the Best Western Saturday night.
The Best Western in West Springfield is the "unofficial headquarters" for the railwire.
There is a indoor pool with hottub with an ajacent tiki lounge the entire pool and lounge
area is decorated like a tropical island  8)
I plan on day tripping down to the N scale convention in Hartford.

The New Englend weather is the wild card for the Springfield show.
If it snows, a lot of us are not driving down there :'(
