Finally!!  ;D

The Greenberg show at Monroeville is always a good one, with some good N-scale layouts. I'm anxious to see what the "WGH" is like.

On the plus side our Ntrak group will be there in Pittsburgh.  We got the floor plan for the WGH show in Monroeville.  A floor plan is available on line at the WGH website.  Unlike the Greenberg and Train Expo Shows the WGH will occupy the entire Expo Mart , not just the East wing.  Most of the manufacturer and vender booths will be in the East wing with Atlas , Athearn, Bachman and Bowser close to the center food court area. 

On a down note our group will not be at the Great Train Expo show on Feb 10 & 11th.   That show allegedly filled up very fast [about 2 weeks after the November show] and we did not return our contract in time.  But we will be there in July and also at the 2nd annual Nscale weekend in Bedford, PA in August..
