I went there to get one (1) thing. Somewhat light crowd, but ample vendors. Saw a few people I know and then I split.

I was there today with BANTRAK.

Pretty much usual vendors.  Crowd was a little smaller than I would have expected, I blame that on the great weather.

Biggest negative today was the new food service vendor.  Short line to place your order followed by an impossibly long wait to actual get your food.  It took them an hour and five minutes, yes you read that right 65 minutes, to fill my order for a shrimp salad sandwich.  It was taking equally long to get a hotdog and chips or chicken tenders and fries, so it wasn't a one-off thing.  My order number was 384 and when I ordered they were filling order 295... I think half the people asked for their money back after waiting half an hour or so.

Different show, same event 😁

This weekend Feb 5-6. Reported today Spring Creek is making the trek eastbound with their mobile showroom.  Might get expensive for some of us

From Nebraska? They might be stuck in Indiana with all the snow.

I should change my direction on the post, they were at Amhearst so they're already east 😁.

It's been a while, has Timonium been worthwhile to find a few n scale items?  Thanks

Usually a fair number of vendors that have N scale, although the last few trips I've come home with just a t-shirt or prints, or both.  I'm getting to the point I'm getting particular about what cars I'm looking for.  It's worth the trip to go though

Anyone going this weekend? I'm trying to tell myself not to go as I've spent a bunch in September and I am watching a couple things on eBay. But the weather forecasted for tomorrow is perfect indoor shopping weather. Hmm.
No farms, no food. Support your local farmer's market!

I'll be there, but given my shopping list and striking out show after show, I'm more excited to eat at Gino's  :D

Anyone have a show report? I wanted to go yesterday but didn't due to the weather. Wondering if it was a good decision or not.

I got 14 Atlas code 55 turnouts and 60 sticks of flex for $200.  A friend that went with me bought 20 Atlas locomotives for $40 a pop.  A few other odds and ends but mostly the same vendors with the same stuff they had in April, in the same location with the same prices.  Have to wonder if some of them ever get tired of carrying same boxes of stuff in and out every show.
