WOW I can not wait to attend the GGLRR Club show and sale. Have been a regular for several years now and it keeps getting better and better every year.

I really like the new location - much more room to walk around and more sellers.

I'll be there looking for great buys and meeting with fellow modelers.


I cannot believe how much stuff I am bringing to the show. Not sure it will fit in the car.

Lionel postwar steam in excellent shape. American Flyer 4-8-4 in excellent condition. Ives orange and black standard gauge loco and two passenger cars. Rivarossi HO big boy.

Lots more. Cheap prices. Last year the other vendors were complaining that my prices were too low.

I sound like a used car salesman... " come on down!"


Well what a rush that was! It was great hanging out with all my old train buddies. I tried to not feel bad while selling locos for $110 that I paid $450 for. The goal was inventory reduction.

As usual, halfway through the show, my table was empty with the exception of one loco and an AF Zephyr train set.

Thanks to all who pulled together to make this a great train show. Let's do it again next year.
