Arrived early and place was already crowded. Won't even discuss the restroom problems. Started over by the club layout section and managed to get the heavyweight diner I wanted cheap. Made my way into the next section and found a vender there from last year and picked up some more MT couplers also cheap, along with three Easy Peasy lighting kits. Not much further along I found the LL E unit for a replacement mechanism. Having robbed one of my GN E-7s for a spare mechanism I will now be able to repower it and return it to the roster. Also cheap. Doing good so far and I have hardly dented my funds. Found a tool vender and found the plastic flexible see through N scale rule I wanted plus some more sanding belts. Kept on going to the next section and found the gentleman with the estate sale stuff I have seen at several other shows. Left his table with two Budd domes and a blunt end observation. And you guessed it again cheap. Not too far away I found an Atlas RS-3, yahoo, and again cheap. Found the Tichy Train booth and came away with another rotary plow. With any luck maybe I can mechanize this one. Visited my book vender and came up short there. Before I departed what was steadily becoming an over crowded place, oh did I mention the restroom problems, well they were even worse by then. On my way out I stopped by the vender with the foam and cardboard storage boxes and picked up two more. Then it was up the road to the LHS and contrary to reports I had no issue parking althought the lot was full. Found all my decal sets but one, some more MTs, and a corrigated diner and coach but lettered for Burlington. Found my water based silver that nobody around here seems to carry, and the latest Trains Magazine. Hit the road and was home with some fast food for myself and the Missus by 1:30. Hauled my loot upstairs to the workshop and then took the prerequiste senior citizen nap. In all a good day and only two items on the shopping list not filled and money still in the wallet. This evening I started hacking up the new corrigated coach in a 2nd try for a resonable approximation of a Q home built dome. Won't be able to do an exact match but I'll catch the flavor better. The old Arnold dome is in the back that I first tried to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Some of the info I have on these stated the seats ran lengthwise down the dome although the photos I found show a normal seating. Seating may have been changed at some point.
