Great Scale Model Train Show


Always a treat to attend the GSMTS, in Timonium Md at the Maryland state fair grounds. Held Sat and Sun, Oct 25th & 26th at the 3-1/2 acre Cow Palace. – http://gsmts.com

Sorry Greenway products  was not there as they always have lots of interesting and unusual detail items, and good buys on things like Classic metal works vehicles

Greenberg’s Phila Show

Always nice to see the Kids eyes at a train show like the Greenberg’s show I just attended at the Philadelphia Expo center at Oaks PA. Especially the Large G Scale layout they had set up with large lit Christmas trees in the center next to a mountain. Also always fun to see the Phila Ntrack modular layout, especially the modules by Alan Schappel.
The show is of course different than The Great Scale Model Train Show in Timonium MD, which is more serious in keeping with a scale presentation and having more manufacturers and custom model makers, but this is close to Christmas, and seeing the kids in their own fantasy world is a great time too.

Train Shows

About to attend the Philadelphia Greenbergs train and toy show December 11 and 12. Has Been a while since I have gone to a Greenbergs show, so it will be interesting to see how the vendors and audience react compared to The Great Scale Model Train Show, held in Timonium Md 4 times a year, which I have attended, at least once a year, for the past several years. I’ll talk about that in a future post.
