Well that was a disappontment. Only about 15 vendors, with mostly standard stuff. The prices weren't bad, tending between 15% - 25% below retail. The5 layouts were okay, but again nothing spectacular, just pretty much farily plain roundy roundy's. The Lionel layout did have a fair amount of their powered accessories that the kids could power through buttons on the outer wall.
I was surprised at how many of the vendors there were selling nothing but stock from hobby shops that had gone out of business. Very little vintage or brass to be found in HO, though there was a small amount of vintage and antique tin and clockwork. Only one vendor had any European stuff at all, none of it in great shape. One guy said he had decided NOT to sell at this GATS because they were charging $70 a table! I was also amazed how many blank looks I got from vendors when asking about Northeast corridor electrics, interesting MOW equipment or any small switchers.
Crowd seemed small, probably less than 100 people there when we were there and the mood seemed almost depressed.
Well at least we got a piece of MOW we needed and some nice research books for not horrible (but not great) prices.
