There are three shows this weekend that will interests the members of the JRD.
Rail Day is this Saturday near Lynchburg. Long an attraction to folks in the JRD it is annual outing for many of our members. There are several modular layouts here each year and JRD area vendor TLC publishing usually has all there books available for those who need to fill in gaps in their library.
The 2nd show this weekend is the joint Greenberg and N Scale East Show in Chantilly, VA. This is not in the JRD bur if your are an N Scaler this is probably your show this weekend if you are not already there earlier for the N Scale only part of the show. There are several layouts and some vendors that usually are not a Greenberg show such as Kato and Digitrax.
The third show this weekend is the O Scale 2 Rail Meet in Strasburg, PA. This is a little far for most folks in the JRD but O Scale guys are used to having to go to great lengths to find what they need. This is a morning only show so be aware of that when planning your trip.
No matter which show draws you this weekend or if you just stay home to work on the layout just remember to have fun and give a little time to some one who asks a question about the hobby.
