Westchester Train Show?

Ok, I am trying to sort this one out. In CTT it says that Westchester County Train show is 12/9. As I recall in CTT it said 12/8? And CTT doesn't have it listed in their website!!

This is a big weekend for collectors in the NY, NJ area. The Montvale Show is Dec. 8th and Dec. 9th (one year I made it to both but it was a stretch). So can I go to both this year?

Incidentally, I love the show in the County Center in Westchester. The building is wonderful, it's very Art Deco and it is way overbuilt. No building will ever be made like it again. It's a decent sized show with a good selection. Montvale is also a good show, there are just tons of dealers there and there are usually nooks and crannies where dealers go and you can pick up some really neat stuff. I also liked it because I saw Angela Trotta Thomas right in the front. Her stuff is much better in person than online or by looking in a magazine.

Anyway, any ideas on when the real dates are for these shows?

Speaking of train shows on Dec. 9th. there is a good one in Jenkintown Pa. At Bryner Chevrolet. Rt. 73 (cottman ave) and 611. They clear out the show room and have a train show there. The SGMA was planning a set up there. But the promoters of the show oversold the place and cancelled us out. :( Oh well maybe next time.
