Dear All,
The first WGH show of the new year is under way at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. I've seen many board regulars (Bob Rule was among the  first) and met many new friends. Attendance today was huge- estimated at over 20,000! The first 1,000 attendees each day get a free Plasticville built-up. There are scores of wonderful displays, most major manufacturers are here, and bargains are EVERYWHERE!
Drop by tomorrow and say "HI" if you're in the area.
Have fun~!

Was there Saturday. The thing was so popular police had to close the exit on Rt 422 was backed up for ~ 6 miles! Well worth the time spent sitting in traffic, some excellent deals on some of the stands.

I was there too! Thanks for the two plasticville split-level's. I thought people were going to start fighting over them. It was a great show! But the floor was way to overcrowded. But I did find a great deal also on my new Bachmann White Christmas N Scale Set.

Final attendance figures have been announced: 40,152! It is believed to be the largest attendance ever at a US train show.
Have fun!
