Trainfest in Milwaukee sets attendance record

FYI: Trainfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin wound up last Sunday and set a new attendance record of 20,979 over two days.
Trainfest started as a one-day NMRA event held at a VFW hall in 1971 and is
now a two-day show featuring clubs, dealers, manufacturers and historical societies. http://www.trainfest.com /

Hi All,
TRAINFEST 2007 sets a new all-time attendance record for the 2 day show on November 10th and 11th.
231 exhibitors including 58 layouts, over 65 vendors, over 65 manufacturers and 25 clinicians/demonstrations experienced a great crowd on Saturday and Sunday, in spite of the sunny, 50 degree ( yard cleanup )temperatures, the Wisconsin Badgers, and the Milwaukee ticketed Green Bay Packers vs. The MN Vikings.
20,979 people attended, setting a new record for TRAINFEST.
The attendance figure does not include the 1,825 exhibitors, manufacturers staff and layout owners that help make America's Largest Operating Railroad Show a success.
Preparations for TRAINFEST 2008, on November 8th and 9th, are underway.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support.
John
