I know this January is going to kick off a whole bunch of things; a new President, a new year, leaving 2008 behind and a new layout in my attic!
It also is the time for a great train show in Springfield, MA. The Amherst Railways Society Railroad Hobby Show. It is fun even if you are exclusively prewar/tinplate. There are tons of parts dealers, train dealers and hobby dealers.
January 24th and 25th at the Big E Fairgrounds in Springfield, MA. My kids and I have been going since just after they were born and I gotta tell ya, they still like it.
See you there!
