Not as many vendors as last year. Probably this event is held too close on the calendar to the Plano Train show

Made some contacts for a HO RR club which I hope to follow up on. Vendors had a decent supply of product all scales. First time to the round house since it was rebuilt . Very impressed. Good selection of rolling stock outside but wasting away.Dan

It seems there are never enough N scale vendors. It is also very difficult to sort through the stuff when trying to find a particular item..vendors need to have their items more almost seemed like a flea market in some booths

Would like to see more large scale (G gauge) participation by vendors.

Almost all the vendors were overpriced. The Lego exhibit was fantastic the other layouts were OK

The show was not a great event like last year's show. Not enough large vendors, a lot of junk and the big vendors were too high priced.

Very disappointed. G Scale venders almost non existent.

Open earlier (at least by 9 AM!) as many attendees travel great distances to participate and at least 100 individuals (families) were standing in a very long line to enter at 10 AM! I traveled across the Border and had to get back by Noon!
