Was there a lot of Weaver items at York? What Weaver items did you see?

Jimmy - there were two NH I5's and a couple of other steamers right near us.
Thank you, Steve and Ben.
Ive got about 50 weaver engines here. Maybe some day I'll get them up on the web, LOL Mostly diesel...a few steam.
Yeah Jim, Steve is right, there were two New Haven I5's just over by him. I only know the one number was 1409(that was the one there still on Saturday). I want to say the other was 1403, but I am not sure. There were only a few others I saw, but I can't recall where exactly or what they were.
I bought a Weaver USRA Pacific in 2 rail from a guy who was diagonally across from Mr.Muffin for $350. I always regretted not getting one of these when they came out and I felt the price was very good.
I noticed a few engines here and there, and there seemed to be more rolling stock than usual with prices all over the map. I probably had around 15 pieces of Weaver rolling stock on my table and sold all but two pieces. I even managed to find a Weaver boxcar in the Purple Hall to take home with me.
I sold a couple of Weaver RS3s at York (delivered to buyer in response to an OGR forum ad), and still have a couple more, plus a couple of GP38s that I will likely sell at some future date. Weaver made some pretty decent motive power, and a lot of excellent rolling stock.
