It was a February show to remember. The Casey Jones Chapter of the Train Collectors Association held their February winter show in Germantown on the 3rd. What was different about this show was the size of both the show and the crowd. There were nearly 40 tables of trains available for sale - trains were everywhere! On top of that, over 200 people came out to see the trains. It looked a lot like the crowd at a show in December, not February. There were lots of kids which made the show even better. Below is a shot of one such little guy looking on with obvious anticipation as a steamer approaches in the background. Then there is the happy grandfather of another little guy who won the Dinosaur Diesel train set the chapter was giving away.
This was by far one of the busiest train shows the chapter has hosted in the area. Everyone seemed to have a nice time, and the chapter received some great feedback from event-goers in a follow-up survey on what they can do to make future shows even better.
