Who is going to WGHOT in Charlotte this weekend.

I was wondering who is going to go to the show this weekend.  I have seen some advertising on tv for it and I plan to be there. Since I am six foot seven inches tall I will be easy to spot.  Also will be wearing a Southern RR cap!

I seriously debated it but it’s very close to a over night stay for me. I figured with the one in Asheville then followed by York I best staying  home.

I would appreciate you letting me know what the show was like. Additionally if there was any G (one gauge) at the show.

Have fun.

I will try to report on it.  I was looking over the exhibits list and there were no G scale layouts listed.

If you are on the fence about going,  there was a tv station at the show this for a preview this morning.  Go to wccbcharlotte.com and scroll down to recent news and click on Wilson's world for a video that is about ten minutes long.

Back home after being at the show. I have never been to York so I can't compare the two.  It was a nice show with Lionel and Mth having nice booths. O Gauge was about 25 percent of the show.  There were 3 O Guage layouts.  HO and N had the largest presence and the most layouts. There were several smaller vendor booths. If it is in Charlotte again I would attend but I'm not sure I would drive over a couple of hours to attend

The only G scale that I saw was at the MTH booth.  It was a tin plate train.

 

It would have been nice to attend,  but 5 hrs round trip for about 90 minutes of show time (all my 3 year would have handled) didn't make it worth it this year. But it looked great. 

You could have a steam train, if you'd just lay down your tracks.

The LCCA Switching tracks traveling boxcar had a busy day meeting with LCCA Members and having fun during the WGHOT show in Charlotte NC today! If your are in Charlotte, please visit the LCCA both tomorrow from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Hope to see you there!!!

What does "WHGOT" stand for?

it is a show that travels to 4 different cities a year and sometimes takes 10 years to return to the same city.  it is owned by the same people who put on the great train show and several others.

Marty, what does that do-hickey do? 

That is the track template for the LCCA modules.  I'm hoping to build a couple with some friends and maybe get a small layout done.  At this point I plan on buying 1 straight module and possibly 1 curve module and then replicate them at home.  A couple of us setup a LCCA table when the Carnegie Science center has Locomotion Weekend here in Pittsburgh and it would be cool to have a small setup for that.
