On Aristo board the MWLSTS ,,Midwest Largescale train show ,is the weekend after our open house. I know Bubba and I are going up to help.
How many others will plan to go?
Sounds like alot of dealers and good layouts to see.
I hope us Midwest folks support a show in our area.

Great, look forward to seeing everyone.
I'm hoping there is lots of "public" coming and visiting and seeing what the hobby is all about.

The show is only 30 minutes or so from our house. We are planning on having our layout (as humble as it is) open for anyone who wants to come down to Taylorville after the Springfield show. My wife has been looking forward to it since they announced it. We still have quite a bit of work to do, but you all are sure welcome to come. I will be at the show some, too.
I agree with Alan; we need to show some excitement about this show or it will dry up and blow away. The mid-west is too historically train-oriented to not have a great showing.

The Gateway Garden RR club will be there, as we are setting up the club layout for the event... one weekend @ Marty's, and the next weekend @ the MWLSTS, now that could be a rough two weekends..... :)

Life is tough

Sounds good, Tom. We've been working on the layout; I hope to have it pretty well back together by then.

Is there a schedule somewhere? I have not seen anything about hours, seminars, banquets, get-togethers, or anything.

Oh, never mind, I found the show hours by clicking on the Southeast show link on the Aristo page. I guess that makes sense?

Tom (and anyone else interested) With the "Bull session" get-together planned for Friday in Springfield after the show, and a birthday party I need to go to Friday evening, Diana and I have decided to have our layout open on Saturday afternnon and evening. Anybody who wants to come by is certainly welcome. It's not much, but we sure like people coming by to enjoy it with us.
