I had the opportunity to go to the National Train Show in Atlanta this past weekend (my girlfriends present to me for our anniversary, I guess she's a keeper). The national show is rather different from the Norcross shows, with very few older kits and individual vendors there. Almost all the vendors were the "big names" in modeling, with Atlas, Kato, Bachmann, Digitrax, BLMA, Soundtraxx, Central Valley, just to name a few. The real standouts at this show were the modular layouts, an amazingly diverse display from literally every scale. The Ark La Tex group mods were beautifully detailed and interactive, while the N scale groups showed out with a massive collaboration, hooking up all their mods together to form a massive layout, which dwarfed anything else there, including the G scale layout!  
 
I passed on buying any rolling stock (with just about everything at $30 or higher) and focused more on literature. I came out with a book I couldn't find anywhere previously, on the WNY&P Railway, and to support the CoG Historical Society, I bought a shirt. Definitely a good day!

Today attended the Allentown first Frost train show. It draws a lot of people. A lot of walking around and no way to remember where that table was with the good things I wanted to see again. I went with a friend and had a nice day.

I attended the Greenberg Tran show at Edison Nj last Sat. and Sun. Very big crowd on Saturday. Sunday was just regular. Lot of families with young kids. It was a good show.

***  I am back from the Wayne NJ train show with a few things after a walk through a walk though the show. This was a crowed train show. Lots of visitors. I got a pair of Lionel passenger cars to add too a set I am trying to complete. A Jouef Pullman to add to another set. A Rivarossi passenger car. A Hornby Dublo passenger car that reminds me of a subway car. And 2 European box cars.
 Not a lot but nothing I regret getting.
 
 In the upper right corner of the photo is my CRRofNJ I4 ( 2-8-0 ) camelback I just finished putting together. A view for the top.

**  New Hope- Solebury Township train Show **
Was Feb 9 2014. Eagle fire house Sugar Road, New Hope PA.
  With the snow fall predicted I thought attendance would be slight. I wasn't counting the people but it seemed a nice turnout. The day became warm for what was predicted, and it didn't snow where I live until last night.  
 The train show had all gauges except for Z. A N gauge train group set up their traveling layout and all the children from 5 to 95 enjoyed it running. A giant was there with a smile as big as the world. A very nice man. He, and the members of his club, did a great job of operating their layout for those in attendance. Their was a small layout close by the N scale one. About 2 1/2 foot square in size. It may have be Z gauge. In the 4th view you can see it . it has two little boys looking at it. So I may be wrong about what I said about Z gauge not being there. There were many any families and lot of kids. I cant encapsulate the whole period of the train show for I, like everyone else was very busy enjoying it.  
 I will post photos of views of the show. Thanks go out to J. DeAngellis and his family, the Show Hosts, along with the members of the Eagle Fire Company,  for allowing use of their location. It is a very nice place. I should have taken a photo of the outside of this location, for it is nice to view, and the people of New Hope, PA, should be proud of it and those of there neighbors who are its heart. I am sorry for not taking its photo and show it also.
 Due to I don't know how to post multiple photos here it will take 4 or 5 posts.
