Next weekend is IT for the DC-Baltimore-Northern & Central Virginia
region for train shows.
The place to be will be the World's GREATEST Hobby Show on tour and it
will be at the Dulles Expo Center, off Willard Rd and Rt.28, about 6
miles east of Dulles Airport.
This is a show UNLIKE any other train show you have ever been to;
professionally setup with draped booths, separated tables, highly
advertised and many more things, too numerous to list here.
The dealers are likely to be a mix of some of the "who's who" in the
rail hobby industry along with many of the dealers who regularly
participate at shows.
What are you likely to find when you get there? Probably just about
anything related to the railfan hobby; books and magazines - both in
and out of print, models and layouts of many different gauges and
loads of goodies for the kids, especially Thomas the Tank Engine and
Want to know more about the show? here's their weblink:
http://www.wghshow.com/showinfo.htm which should answer just about ANY
question you'll have.
The hours are 10-6 Saturday and 10-5 Sunday with a family admission
rate I am sure or $10/person. Make sure you arrive EARLY for the
crowds are expected to be significant and parking, while plentiful for
regular events will likely be an issue before day's end. However, it
WILL be worth it.
A number of historical societies WILL be in attendence including the
N&W HS plus Carstens and Kalmbach as well as Athearn, Walthers and who
knows how many more.
See you there.
