It was a terrific show and a tremendous crowd. Thanks to Chuck for setting this up, and thanks to TedsGG1 for the opportunity to get tickets. It was nice for me, as it meant I don't have to mail anything in. My meal was everything the cardiologist recommends I avoid - and it was yum!
My big net was a PWC Set, the NJC FM Trainmaster with the Lionel Lines 2500 Series Passenger cars, and the 2 car add-on. Also picked up some little things to mess with like a pair of 711 switches (no controllers). A little project for myself.
Most pricing was fair, and everyone I dealt with was willing to deal. I did notice those pricey LV Railking cars previously mentioned. When I come across things like that, I just laugh and walk away. At every show there is always someone who throws stuff to the wall to see what sticks!!! Just gotta laugh. Probably saw it go for stupid money at Ebay, and it only happened once, so now they guy figures that's the new value. Oh well, good luck, I'll just walk by and wave hi.
As for vendor location, some of them do move around. Not always sure if it is by choice or done by the show operators. One of my favorite guys there was in a different location, and he got more tables this show, so he was moved several rows over to accommodate his request.
Anyway, I will be back!!!
