I have been doing the Gaithersburg show since the 1970’s and it has always featured all railroadiana except there has been a small amount of model trains in the past few years.  If you are only looking for model trains,  it really is not worth the drive with the cost of gas these days.  I will have a lot of builder’s and number plates available, a couple of N&W & VGN diesel plates, but no N&W steam plates.

Understand this show is great for various Railroadannia — RR memorabillia.  But what about model RR stuff.  Does anyone know how much model train stuff is at this show as compared to specialty model RR shows, e.g., Greenberg’s Train & Toy Show (Dulles Expo Center in December), that emphasize model railroading.

  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.
