    Strange, no thread for 'Train Shows'. So , post your train shows here.

    First, why aren't any Texan's at the World's Greatest Hobby show this Jan 5-6 in Fort Worth ? This is a great venue to be at as WGH averages about 25000 people per weekend !

    I am bummed that Atlas will not be there.

    New merged GTE-Greenberg 2014 Train Show schedules released, and it ain't pretty out here in the west. The Northern California is ONE show in November (Pleasanton, Nov 22-23) and NO Southern California show(s) !
    http://www.greattrainexpo.com/schedule.html
    http://www.greenbergshows.com/schedule.html

    They say that they have eliminated the east-west boundaries so they can each bring new to the regions, etc. But we are seeing less. GTE is now Great Train Shows and I hope they announce more venues as they become available (as they have before).

    Sucks.

    Last year's Cal Stewart show up here in Santa Clara (mostly O and collectors) but has continued to add layouts with this years was in a really big venue and had a great attendance. Hoping for that to fill in up here in the San Francisco Bay Area !

    The last show in Ontario, CA was mostly G scale. Not very impressive. Sad really.

    DC Z-Bend Track is scheduled to display at the Greenberg Train show on August 9 and 10 at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA (Washington, DC area)

    We will have about 10 Z-Bend Track modules set up and as usual, expect to see some unannounced, unreleased AZL locomotives and rolling stock on the tracks.

    You never know! ;-)

    I usually just place a few extra things in the trains and see if / when anyone notices. (Sometimes it takes folks a while to "discover" something!)
