Today, the trains at the Kingston station are shorter, the locomotives much newer, and most of the cars are not brand new anymore, but are being refurbished for their first, second or third time.
I'll be selling copies of my book at the show, as well as some VIA, CN and CP paper items, plus books from my collection. If you haven't seen my book in person, this is your chance. If you'd like to buy a copy, I'll gladly inscribe it for you. If you just want to stop by and talk trains, or about future VIA projects, that's fine too.
This is my first time as a vendor. My usual train show technique is make a quick round-the-room, check out some goodies and their prices, then return to selected tables for an in-depth look and make some purchases. I'm sure this show will feature lots of items for sale, with a good variety of layouts and dealers.
In fact, this will be the first time I've seen the train show premiere of a book and its creator in person.
