Well Saturday was the Allentown PA train show at Merchants Square Mall. Lots of HO trains were there to be had.  Even some roaming around the Antique shops the mall is full of.
* A good day.

I had one once before, 10 years ago, and traded it away. This one is going to stay.

***  They are out there at train shows and auctions. Got to keep looking. Penn-Line makes one that is almost the same. So does Lionel. The Tyco-Mantua is the most common with the life-Like next.

Last Sunday at Montvale NJ at St Joe's High School was a train Show. Though 85% of the many tables were collector trains , Lionel and American Flyer, I found some HO. More than half of what I got were earmarked for parts, being damaged in some way or missing parts. I'll post a photo of the trains latter on after the photos of the show itself.

The hallway from the front entrance to the doors to the 2 rooms was also full on trains. All larger collector trains. I didn't take any photos of this hall.

* This room is the Cafeteria.
