It's THIS week and this coming Weekend! It's almost here.

Back again after a one-year absence .................

For the first time in TWO years, the Gaithersburg Railroadianna show will be held at the Montgomery County, Maryland fairgrounds on November 5-6-7; Friday-Saturday-Sunday. Yes, it will cost you more to get in Friday and Saturday if you want to "cherry-pick" the goodies FIRST, but if you are an advanced collector or interested individual, it can easily be worth it with one big yummy deal.

I suppose most of the usual suspects will be in attendance including several railroad historical societies. In the recent past years, the B&O, C&O, Southern, SAL/ACL, NRHS, R&LHS and a few other railroad historical societies have been there with their goodies. 

The N&WHS will be there and have the newly revised 6-1-1 book available for sale and perhaps some other treasures just in time for the holiday season.

Railroad China is also there and if the RR made it or issued it, it’s likely to be there in one form or era or another.

Books, magazines, videos, builder's plates, timetables, annual reports, photographs of all sorts, what have you and the list goes on and on. There is also usually other transportation material from steamships and aircraft as well. Videos and other goodies should also be there too.

If you only want to attend Sunday, which is the general public day, the admission cost is about $10 and those hours are 9-4.

No football sports should be conflicting as the Washington Football team has their bye week then and Baltimore plays a night game.

So guys, this is your final reminder

Hope to see you there.
