    Here some pics I took at the Big E model railroad show in Springfield Mass yesterday. Great deals and great meals(Gotta have a chili dog if you go).
    Lots of moduals in ALL the scales.
    This first one is an HO scale seaport scene.

    And here's the haul!
    Spectrum H16-44 Better-half bought. The guy wanted $25, but I knocked him down to $20 because the hand rails need repair.
    And a new Athern GP-35. Good deal at $60.00. Figures though, one of my local LHS guys that was there had the cheapest one.
    It was fun. Lots to see. I highly recomend it!
