For those interested in making early plans for this show, the dates are January 26 and 27, 2019.
In addition, the brand new MGM Grand casino in Springfield is scheduled to open tomorrow and might be an additional point of interest for those so inclined. I might even be able to convince my wife to go to the train show if she knows we'd be staying at the casino and maybe seeing some entertainment or having a nice dinner at night.
And who knows - if you "play your cards right" you may be able to buy a few more items at the show !
