5th time at York, but 1st time going to a bandit meet. Stopped in on Wednesday morning. I am not a collector and everything I have is modern and runs around the track, so I skip over all the other stuff. I'm usually just looking for rolling stock that would be fun to have on the track, and it's a small sampling compared to York, but I thought those selling modern had stuff priced to sell.   Saw MTH premier boxcars for $18 each and traditional rolling stock for less. I wouldn't make a special trip for the meet, but it was convenient on Wednesday. Glad we stopped in.

This was our first York and I have to say that the parking lot bandit meet at Wyndham was one of my favorite moments. It was awesome to see all these trains outside and we found some of the best deals here. Honestly I would have spent even more but was afraid to spend it all before the “real” show. As it turned out I should have as there were some really motivated vendors with excellent prices which were tougher to find at York.  What a great time. I hope it flourishes with the new 2 day format. We will be back!!

This is probably a stupid question but for the bandit meets, especially outside, do people just show up, park and put up a table with their wares?  Or are they getting permits or talking to an organizer or anything?  I was thinking the very nature of "bandit meet" is just show up and put up your table.  I've sometimes thought about going down and setting up a table to thin out my collection as I have too much "stuff" for not enough "space".
