Here is good news you have been awaiting. The Timonium train show at the Timonium Fair Grounds' Cow Palace is a GO!
It's just over 10 days away as I write this, so guys, get you honey dew chores completed this coming weekend.
October 2-3 are the dates this time around and yes, it is returning to its' more familiar territory with lots of parking, and almost as much "social distancing" space between tables and operating layouts in the 3 (THAT'S RIGHT), three huge rooms of goodies for everyone to pore thru for the books, magazines, videos, models, parts, railroadianna or whatever to choose from.
Oftentimes there are several railroad historical societies in attendance so check the gsmts web site for the exact listing of who and what will be there. In the past, groups representing the PRR, SAL, ACL, N&W, C&O, B&O, WM, B&O RR Museum, and others have been in attendance.
Between purchasing sessions, there is also food available to chow down on in the center hall rear.
In addition, there will be the usual White Elephant table (I like to call it Pink Elephant table), for items offered at whatever prices, usually by non-vendors. There are typically true bargains there, so you get that, the operating layouts, the dealers with their goodies, the historical societies and lots more.
The hours are 9-5 Saturday and 10-4 Sunday and there is an admission fee.
PS - The Baltimore Ravens football team is playing at 4:30 that Sunday afternoon and the baseball team also known as the Baltimore Orioles is closing out another disappointing season and is not in contention for the post-season, so those potential conflicts should not be factors.
Hope to see you there sometime over the weekend.
Please remember to be safe and think safe at all times.
