Who will report on Trainfest in Milwaukee this weekend?

Someone said that nothing was announced at the iHobby Show because some manufacturers might be saving announcements for Trainfest in Milwaukee, which takes place this weekend, November 10 and 11.

Any Railwire asshats planning to attend? If so, can you photograph any new items shown and report any new announcements? Maybe even ask PCM what the status of the PRR M1a-b project is now.  ;D ;D

Saving announcements for Trainfest......   Talk about wishful thinking! :)

Lou- there are typically a few announcements made at Trainfest.  If you're not familiar with the show, it's one of the largest all-train shows in the world, filling over 200,000 square feet.  This is the 36th year and last year it drew over 21,000 attendees in two days.  Trainfest is not small potatoes by any means.

Sparky - sorry for being cynical!  I've heard great things about the show.  Just a little jaded over waiting for some things I would have hoped we would see by now, but maybe some good stuff will get announced!

PCM announcements became legend and legend became myth… and N scale which should not have been forgotten was lost to PCM ...

Lol @ more UP bullshit.
Followed by more AT&SF bullshit and BNSF bullshit.  Don't get me wrong if you model these roads but someone at Kato still doesn't recognize us Eastern Seaboard fans.

They realized that they were mistaken and PRR wasn't actually a BNSF scheme and have cancelled them.

Out of the HO vaporware department, test shots of the I1sa have finally materialized!!!

A personal friend has reviewed them and forwarded them to the TrainFest show. PCM will be there. So definitely ask them where the heck their N scale products are!!!!

So besides the Kato virtual non-announcement, hopefully we'll get some real news ...

(when's the next big train show after this? Kato announces UP Mikes, BNSF SD70MACs, and yet another SP GS4 road number)
