Guys:

I took some pictures and will send them to you in several emails to make them manageable. I've got to go to work in the AM so you may have to ad lib a story. Nevertheless it was a good show. Crowds were steady both days. Vendors were somewhat low in number due to a competing "World's Greatest Hobby on Tour" in Columbus, OH this same weekend.

Highlights of our exhibit included the running of multiple trains including mixed freight of Dan and Zach Perrott, inaugural run of Brandon Carney's Amtrak E8, running of twin Pennsy and Amtrak streamliners by James Driesbach and Paul Williamson and a special appearance of Thomas, much to the delight of our younger audience.

I will try to caption the various photos for your ease of use. 

As always, use the best and pitch the rest.

Andy

Above and Below: It must be Thomas.  We knew where he was on the track by watching from inside the layout, little feet race around the layout accompanied by the cry and screams of "Thomas"! Photo by Andy Chester - Jan 2011
