I will be setup in booths M41 and N40. Behind me will be the big Thomas the Tank Train ride. I will have a big 4x4 sign in my booth that will have my business name on it. My business name is RDTW Collectables. I will be selling S scale and O scale diecast vehicles. Stop by and say hi! Here is a link to my web site to preview what I will be selling: http://www.rdtw.com

I just went to the last train show at oaks. Is there any difference between what I saw then and the one in January. I was kinda disappointed in the last one. I really want to go just need some input.

IMO, the Greenberg shows at Oaks are lame, and I'll personally not bother to go to any of them again. All cheap plastic toys and very few train items. I think you'll find this show to be significantly better. I believe there are going to be 15 or 16 operating layouts at the show in all scales.

Hi wjacob,

Yes most of the vendors that you saw in Oaks a few weeks ago will be at the World Greatest Hobby on Tour Show. There will also be folks there that only do the Worlds Greatest Hobby on Tour Show. Here is a list of vendors and manufacturers that have signed up for the show so far: http://www.wghshow.com/phl_exh_121113.pdf As I mentioned in my original post, this show is the Grand daddy of all shows. It does not compare to any other show!

Regards
Rich

Well then it seems I will start saving some money and plan on attending the show. Thanks for the info.

I was really getting tired of the "train shows" with a ton of cheap toys.
