National Train Show Indy

Now that the N Scale Convention is in the books it's time to see who is going to Indy this week.  My wife and I will be there Friday afternoon and Saturday from opening until mid-afternoon.  Indy is only about 4 hours away for us.

Any chance of a Railwire meeting spot and time?
Best regards,

Roger

Speaking of whose going... does anyone know if Bachmann and Kato will be there?  If so there yet may be some other great models being announced!!!

 If I remember right there was a question on the Bachmann forum some time ago asking about new steam .  Think the response was to wait till the July show .....

Do you have to pay cash to get in or do they take credit cards?  Anyone know?  Website doesn't say, unless I missed it!

I decided just now to go Friday and Saturday.  I expect it to be fun.  8)  Cleveland was my first and only.

Someone please ask Clare @ Sylvan when the new vehicles will hit the streets.  They were announced some time ago but have yet to reach the product section of the website.  I only have eyes for the Studebaker pick-ups, so I'm curious what's next  from Sylvan too (in N, of course).
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

A new-run Bachmann 2-8-0 with an MSRP of $400 ???    Is it really going to be so cosmetically and operationally superior to the old Spectrum 2-8-0, which can be had for 60 bucks these days, that it merits a $400 price tag?

Sound costs.  Pure and simple.  If you want to play you will have to pay.  For me I would think that there would be some other, more reasonable options available.

My inclination is to pick up one of the earlier version for $60.  What bugs me is that the locomotive, as far as I know, is "generic", so unlike the K-4, is the 2-8-0 a model of anything in particular?

Pete's Garage is kind of cool....and who is Railroadline Models, anyway?
 I like the fact they do multiple scales, including ours :D
