Is this a running, selling, or buying kinda event?

Yes :D

Numerous vendors, quite a few layouts.  Last time was a huge T-track module layout.  Good trip if you're looking for deals.  Same weekend is Mainline Hobby open house, so depending on your travels, could catch some layout tours as well down towards the PA/MD state line

And don't forget railfanning!   :D

Might have some stuff to unload myself. Haven't been able to run a train in so long my engines probably need relubing first.

Just reserved hotel at the convention center for my son and I. For anyone still thinking about going, if you want to stay there, Marriot said the rooms are almost sold out.
Also we will be taking The Pennsylvanian to Altoona. Looking forward to the convention!

I work on Sunday, so I'll get in on that side of the fun.  I've been given the green light I'm not needed on Saturday 😁

I'll be there. Looking forward to it.

Don't forget to wear your TRW name tag which you can print at: http://conrail1285.com/rwgen/  so I can put a name with a face and you can too.

I’ll be there exhibiting my Hiles Tower doughnut layout. Looking forward to meeting a lot of you and enjoying the finer things in Altoona, like stocking up on Mallow Cup fluff at the Boyer factory store.

I'm usually the guy that does it.  Since I've never been to the Blair County Convention Center I don't know the setup.  But I've been told by the organizers there are places for that whether it'll be inside, outside, etc.  I've been given access to the PA system so I will some kind of announcements once I scope out the place and decide.

It'll probably be at the end of the show on Saturday but don't quote me.  End of show so that vendors can participate and not have to worry about their stuff in their tables.
