Springfield Big "E" Show This Weekend!

Just a note to mention I will attending the Big "E" Train Show, also known as the Springfield Show, or the Amherst Train Show, depending on who you are talking to! It will be great to see all the Free-mo guys again as I will be bringing my Woodstown Jct. module up to include in the very large Free-mo layout. We'll be set up in the Mallory building, the larger area in the back, and we shouldn't be hard to spot as we will have an area about 200' long filled with modules.

Here is a peek at the layout plan, and a link to the plan PDF file:

My Woodstown Jct. modules are at the far right on this plan, connected to fellow NJ Free-mo member Bill Grosse's Yardville module, and across from Capitol Free-mo member Dan Picciotto's Boston Street module.

We will have modules coming in from Ohio, NY, Toronto, NH, MD, VA, MA and of course NJ. It is an impressive layout and great work from James Koretsky of NE Free-mo for finding the best use of the space and also arranging them into a suitable operations oriented layout.

We will be conducting a few operating sessions during the show. At other times I may be out on the show floor looking around and seeing people and vendors. So if you don't see me at the layout, look for me walking around or stop by later in the day.

Hope to see you there!
