In preparation for the next show, I am building new display boards, and I feel that the number of boards will go from one to three, with the main board focusing solely on North American TT Scale, the second board on our "TTraveling fleet", and the third dealing with TT as an international scale.

As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.

There was some Tri-Ang TT for sale at the show: a "Jinty 0-6-0" and some cars and some "Type A" track that I got for $80.

Day One Complete:

Overall a good show, with a better turnout than most shows in Atlanta that we have gone to.

There was some questions about TT Scale, the stack of pamphlets had to be replenished a few times, and there were a few individuals familiar with TT Scale there that were glad to see it on display.

No real negatives thus far, aside from the replacement motor in the MTB SW1200 starting to make more noise. Then again the motor has at least 500 run hours on it, besides the test program that tried to cook it off as well...
