  • The World's Greatest Hobby on Tour

    Is it worth the money?? Basically it's $10 per person, so wife and me that's 20 bucks plus parking...Granddaughter is free. I don't mind the 3-6 dollar per person fees at most of the train shows around the area, and they all have free parking. But the venue that this show is at only has paid parking, and it's quite a hike from a mall parking lot. It says it has large vendor displays, and some clinics with 15 operating train "displays"... "Not your usual swap meet type show", from their mailer.

    I did see an e-mail in my junque mail that MTH (Mike's Train House) was going to be at the show in MI, is that at the center there off of I-96 at Novi Road? I there once about 8-10 years ago and was put off by the parking fee and not overly impressed with the show. Different expectations, maybe. After going to AA/Saline show I may be broke anyhow. Of course that show disappointed me last year, parking was a bear and vendor count was down. Hope it's picked up this year, we'll see Saturday.

    Just checked the web info on the Novi show, lots of vendors we don't see at the swap meets.

      Yeah, that's the place, I think it's now Suburban Show Place...

      I'll have my table down the aisle a little way down from the LEGO display. I'll have the "TimeWaster" on it, along with some stuff I'm trying to sell. I'll be the guy with the funny looking head.

            The WGH show was recently in the Philadelphia area a few weeks ago. I went and was happy with it. A variety of dealers and manufacturers were also present, as well as a lot of local clubs.
