* * Yesterday 8-15-2012 was the Allentown, Pa. Merchants Mall train show.  
 I attended, joined with some friends and meet some other people I know from other forums.  
* This is not about me but what I seen. For HO scale this is a very good train show. It is for people who collect and run older HO. Dealers here show and sell used equipment. Being a retired guy I look for trains I remember and have seen in the past. A list of what I got at this show would reflect what I just mentioned. Names like Marx, Gilbert, old US Mantua, and trains by Gorden Varney.  
 I'll post some photos here, and in the next few replies of what I saw when I looked around.

* Another Wayne ; A second look at the N scale layout. Roadways were placed on these modules. In all model railroading, Artistic License applies. If a modeler tries to fill in a area with interlocking roadways. One must remember that there is a space restriction and the steep grades and tight angles is a modeler trying to fill in areas with different and interesting things, other than track and railroad buildings.  
* These clubs do it all for free.
