The Sheboygan layout is three rail, it is geared to having children
operate it, and is a big hit with them. The other layouts are Z, N, S
and H-O, with 1 1/2" scale on display and setup outside for rides. Roger
Sounds like a nice variety. I see a gantry crane on the Lionel layout.
Do you have any other operating accessories? They'd go over well,
I think...log dumpers and so forth.
The HO M&S layout looks very nice, especially for a portable layout.

Gerard The Lionel layout was displayed by the LAKEHORE OSCALERS
OF SHEBOYGAN and had a beacon and crossing flasher for operation
accesories, but none the less attracted attention all day. The H-O
portable is owned by our club, METRO MODEL RR CLUB Ltd. and was started
over twenty years ago. It has won prizes at two National Train Shows.
A typical attendance of 1000+ enjoyed the layouts and helped the vendors
go home satisfied. Roger
Yup, they'll do that, even in the age of hyper-realistic video games
all kinds of flashy graphics. Those big tinplate trains sound GREAT
on the traditional Lionel track, too. :)
President, a box of track and now some L-girders.
That show is about ten miles from my home, and what I really like most about
that show is the cost --- it is only $2 for adults, free for kids. It's the
one local show I recommend to families which have a young child (or two, or
three...) who have a casual interest in trains, because of the low cost.
Yet it still offers a chance for more serious modelers to shop & swap, as
well as reacquaint themselves with other modelers in the area.
Metro does a great job with the show.
