    I am planning on going, One of the few events that I truly look forward to each year, Haven't figured on Saturday or Sunday yet and somehow, I will see everything even if it kills me.

    Gees...A fourth building????
    I've been going to that show since...Well....They didn't even fill half the Better Living Building. Most of the space back then was taken by Amherst's Layout(With a working hump yard, ....something you have to see,) and a portable grandstand(To watch the layout in operation, while you ate your chili dog)
    Hard to believe only twenty years.........
