This is a heads up for Southern California forum members, I found the "Great Train Expo" will be holding 3 shows in the SoCal region in the coming months:


Dec 6-7 at the Ventura Co fairgrounds


Dec 13-14 at the Del Mar fairgrounds
Jan 3-4 at the Anahiem Convention Center

and March 21-22 at the Costa Mesa fairgrounds

While not large scale only or even mostly, given these are the only relatively "big" train shows in our area (IOWs not a glorified local club swap meet) until the BTS in June, there should be some LS stuff, at the least maybe the Door Hollow or the Del Oro guys will be there. So if anyone is interested, mark your calenders, be sure to notify the wife unit well ahead of time, wear your best train t-shirt and see ya there.

I am planning on going to the show in Ventura on Saturday Dec 6.
Would like to make the Jan 3-4 show in Anaheim, but will have to
Wait and see if that will plan out.

Del Mar is NEXT weekend, 13th and 14th ...too far for me though


Did anyone go to Ventura last weekend, buy anything?

I went on Sunday, pretty small show compared to the old GATS shows at Pomona, 4 or 5 N layouts, a Z layout, an HO traction layout, and the circus train guys over in one building, and about 2 dozen vendors in another building. Surprisingly good proportion of large scale. Hans from Gold Coast was there but only brought a sampling of product. Shame I was hoping he would have brought one of the Taboo-China knock offs he has with him, have to visit the store for a look at that I guess...


Got one old used-LGB car fer real cheap, an airbrush stand (and a quick lesson in airbrush use), several back issues of the Gazette, and 2 DVDs, on the Uintah RR and on John Allens Gorre & Dephitad RR. Spent only a little more than I planned, but the DVDs were too good to pass up.

I'm going to the show in Del Mar on Saturday. I'll be there Friday too...helping Bob Baxter get his layout up and going.

The Del Mar show is almost a sell out from the organizers point of view. Bob wasn't sure he was going to be allowed to set up as the organizer had to fit more booths into the room.

Vic, I'll miss seeing you guys, but we gotta go thaw out. However, I am planning on Costly Mesa in March. Give my best the Bob and Sandra Baxter and pass along my get well wishes to Don Gage. Oh, and tell Jonathan Blei "Hulloh" too.
