Chas Beeman, who posts here regularly, went, as he along with others from St. Louis, visited me on Saturday.

I'm going to edit the title of this thread, with the correct town, the show is in.

Yes, I went.  I think table count was up a bit, attendance was up a bit, and Saturday evening room trading at the Comfort Inn was up a bit.  Al is doing a great job organizing and advertising, and still lots of interest out there.  I'm guessing show was 70/30 HO to large scales, but still many things to choose from (vintage-modern-new-used).  Nobody really letting stuff go cheap as it's easy to now find prior sale values online, but things were there to be had.


I'll be at the swap meet in Indianapolis this Saturday and in St Louis for the swap meet the Sunday of Thanksgiving, but I also know there are shows coming in Parsippany and Milwaukee.  I wish I could be at all of them, but I get to my share...
