Does anyone know if there is much G scale stuff at the Eastern States show in Springfield , MA later this month?

Chris - there are two module groups that set up Large Scale layouts and there are a few dealers.  Charles Ro/USA Trains and a Company from CT (Ametaos ?)  Aristo sets up there booth


I'm hoping to see Aristo's GP-40 there.

There is also a father and son that build G Scale wood buildings/bridges at very a reasonable price.
This is the only show they do each year. They are in one of the smaller buildings.

I've been to that show once and while it was **** getting thru in a little less than 4 hours there was enough large scale stuff for me to spend my allotted budget for the trip! I felt fortunate that I was only looking for large scale stuff as it allowed me to skip tables that otherwise I'd have to scour with a magnifying glass looking for the latest and greatest or the best deal. While I'd love to go back this year it simply won't be happening.

John Mikesh from Aristo will be there with a table and a display this year. The GP-40s and the new double and plug cars will be on display.

Anyone from Southern Maine, seacoast NH or northeast Mass going to show for a day trip, that could use a passenger to help with gas and tolls

Possibly heading from SE Mass, anyone looking for a ride? Day trip only.  And seeing that there is no football that weekend, there is an excellent chance.

Just got home a few minutes ago. It was very crowded, lots of "Excuse mes". /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif
Not much G Scale although Charles Ro had a big presence. However, I did buy  over 100 feet of used LGB track for for about $1.50 per FOOT !! I made out like a bandit.  :D
