Is it ok to bring my Z scale stuff that I'm selling and walk around to try to sell it?

Sure, I think that would be just fine

There is always a large "White Elephant" table at the show where folks who don't want or need a whole table can place their wares for sale at a small commission. The table is attended (to cut down on pilferage) and they handle the sales, accounting and disbursing to you at the end of the day.
I believe that the White Elephant Table would be the best way for you to market your equipment. It would certainly avoid any misunderstandings with the show management.

Back in June, when I went to sell off my brass collection (all four models), none of the show management had a problem with my dragging my stuff about.
I spoke with Howard (nice guy!), and even checked out the White Elephant table. They take a 15% cut of whatever you put there. After a couple of hours, I took back both plastic diesels (an Athearn Genesis SD70I and P2K SD60, both undec) and eventually sold them to another dealer.

That's cool. Greenberg pitches his show to the public as a buy, sell or trade show. They gave me a bunch of crap for bringing a couple of items to trade one time. Greenberg, if anyone's interested, also partakes in retail price maintinence. He gives dealers grief for discounting his books etc. That's against the law. Too bad he's too small a patato to prosecute. S/V Express 30 "Ringmaster" "No shirt, no skirt, full service"
