I got there early for the early bird entrance and am glad I did - the line snaked the distance of a couple city blocks by the time the doors opened at 8:00. More throngs of people came in at the 9:00 regular opening. Seems to get busier and better attended every 6 months - I wish they could share their secret with TCA's Eastern Division for the York meet, It is breaking my heart to see it shrink every 6 months.
Maybe the secret is the dealer's pricing? I got some absolutely fantastic deals. A PW Lionel Denver and Rio Grande 2376 F3 pair that I've been on the hunt for for over a year, and for only $350, less that half of what I saw them going for, in same or poorer condition, at the last two York meets.
I also bought a real nice American Flyer covered hopper for, sit down, only $10, and 2 link coupler American Flyer lighted cabeese - BOTH for $10.
I am one happy boy AND I have train bank finds left for York in 7 weeks or so
