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.

I'm convinced that certain vendors view train shows mainly as a social get-together, rather than as an opportunity to transact business.
If they actually manage to sell some of their overoptimistically priced merchandise, then it's considered as an unexpected bonus.

I saw a few great deals and managed to find three Western Maryland RR Historical Society N Scale gondola cars that I had never seen before. Three for $40 still new in the boxes. I see that as a good deal. There were a good number of craftsman kit vendors this year and as John noted a ton of layouts. Bantrak set up three layouts. NTrak, TTrak, and FreeMoN. Overall I say it was a good show.

Those would be the old ConCor cars in round herald?.  I believe they were the only Society sanctioned foray into N scale.  They were done around the time I built the old museum layout back in the 80s.  I'd love to get hold of a set myself.
