The Albany Polish Club train show is extremely close to Crossgates Mall, and only a couple of miles from Colonie Center Mall. Both malls have lots of shopping and lots of family entertainment. I plan to attend.

Sounds like fun...I'll try to make it, presuming the weather holds up (I'm six hours south of Albany, in central Maryland). Good excuse to hit Zombie Planet while I'm up there...a great game store. PD

I went to their show in early December. Good location, lots of great vendors, bought items I had been looking for a long time at reasonable prices. If it's raining you might as well be there.

I was at the Albany Train show yesterday. The show was well attended with lots of families and kids. There was face painting and a layout with multiple loops for the kids to operate. I think it was HO. There were also at least five display layouts. I'd guess there were around 90-100 tables. Anybody else go? What did you think?

While I don't take pictures at train shows or meets, I understand that the fellows who promoted the train show do have photographs. Hopefully they will post some.

I did make it there. It was pretty good wish there was a little more dealers. One issue I had was I wanted prices on items and no one was around. I asked multiple people who where the owner is and he wasn't around Lost my sale. Anyone else have this issue

Thanks to all who attended the show yesterday and all of the vendors who made the trip. Special thanks to those who took the time to bring their layouts for everyone to enjoy. We are striving to make this show the best that it can be, so all of your comments, good and bad, are appreciated. Regarding the number of vendors, we pretty much reach capacity at about 105 vendor tables, so our goal is to make the most of our vendor space by having vendors that will bring what novice train...

I was there with a friend; we shared a table with an eclectic array of stuff ranging from pre-war American Flyer O gauge, a Weaver Milwaukee Road passenger set, new KLine GG1's and so on. He sold a Max Gray loco and i a Lionel Wanamaker box car, but we both had a good time chatting with old friends and acquaintances. It's not about how much you sell, but how good a time you have. jackson

How is the Kingston show compared to this one
Reply

Re: Albany Train Show

modeltrainsparts ·
Bagelman, The Kingston show in most respects is very similar to the one last weekend in Albany. However , don't go expecting a large number of dealers at smaller shows like these. Aside: i already told you that before when you asked about the Albany show, if you remember. The amount of work for a dealer to pack, travel, set up, display, hopefully sell, tear down, re-inventory, and return to the shelves back at the store is considerable; especially when you are already working a six day week.

Currently, we only run the Albany show, but we may look to do an additional show in the future.

Thank you modeltrain, I do like when the large vendors are there but also like when they arnt because it seems when they arnt, I find things for even a better price.

I prefer smaller, local shows, where the majority of the table holders are hobbyists, not dealers with stores.

CW. Did you pick anything up at this past show? Is there a show in glens falls also a couple times a year?

Re: Albany Train Show

Vintage Trains ·
Good calls on the smaller train shows! I agree with ALL of your comments. This show will never compete with shows like Springfield or York, but there is certainly a place for smaller, regional shows where hobbyists can get together, see friends, find a couple of bargains and learn from fellow enthusiasts. There is a different feel at the smaller shows and we hope to make this a GREAT smaller show. Thanks for all of the support.

No, I didn't buy anything. There are shows in Glens Falls. I've attended a few times. I don't know their frequency or schedule. The times I've gone, friends have invited me to attend.

I thought K-Line made/offered a very nice scale sized B&A caboose, back when they came out with that beautiful B&A 2-8-4.

Re: Lionel Boston & Albany Berkshire Caboose

K Line made one ,K616-3181 detailed interior, nice lighting and a smoke unit. These are scarce. I'm not sure of its accuracy as its a "Santa Fe style" caboose: Lionel also made one many years ago 6920. These are common and affordable on the secondary market/ebay. No interior detail, basic lighting -one bulb for the whole thing , no smoke unit. Its more accurate I believe, as its a "New York Central style" caboose:

Re: Lionel Boston & Albany Berkshire Caboose

Both Lionel and K-Line made B&A cabooses. The Lionel was sold with the factory mail order B&A Hudson. The K-Line version was made in the early 2000's to go with their Berkshires. Both seem to be fantasy schemes. I prefer to make my own. I have a fleet of 4 Berkshires. I look to find a reasonable priced Williams brass one in any road name. Re paint, re position the trucks, change the lamps out, add Atlas trucks, and letter it up.

Lionel Berkshire Smoke Unit Connection Problem

MyToyTrains ·
I just got a Lionel Berkshire Boston and Albany engine #6-11389 at York. The smoke unit was not working so I opened up and removed the boiler shell. I removed the plugs between the shell and the engine and unfortunately didn't notice where the plug from the smoke unit went. It is a four wire connector and there are two four wire connectors on the main board. I have included a photo of the circuit board. The two white four conductor sockets are on the lower left of the board. Does anyone know...

I have a Lionel Boston & Albany Berkshire locomotive #6-11389. Does Lionel make a caboose for this engine (and if not then does any other manufacturer make one)?

York Engine $100+ Price Drops: 3rd Rail, MTH, K-Line NIB & Weathered

sud148 ·
I have two scale Santa Fe 4-8-4 Northern engines for sale. Both have been upgraded to DCS PS3 with separate tender and boiler boards. A full premier harness supports individual control of all functions rather than the limited control of a standard upgrade kit. The 3rd rail engine has phenomenal details, and the sound is outstanding with the brass tender. By far my most detailed engine, it has a few defects that are reflected in my asking price. First, there’s some handling damage to the bell...
