Van Wert, Ohio Train Show Today and Tomorrow?
Author: wabash2800

I wonder how it went today. Reportedly, the last I heard, they sold 221 of 230 tables.

It would be good to hear from any Trainorders members who were there.

Heard that Saturday was well patronized but Sunday was slow. There was no food served but two food trucks: one with ribs and one with ice cream? Since it was a two day show, I'm curious about how it went from the dealers' perspective. I heard that most patrons wore masks.

Correction: I was told by someone who was there that everyone was required to wear masks, though the local newspaper on the Internet said they "were strongly recommended".  Also, the food truck with ribs also had Mexican food.

If there was, maybe they aren't on TrainOrders. 

I'm in Virginia - too far away and not doing unnecessary travel.  I am thinking about Timonium this fall.  A survey was sent out a week or so ago but I didn't respond to it.  It's around 3 months off yet.

Cheers, Jim

I was not in attendance, however a friend went and mentioned there was not lot of social distancing going on and he did not stay long.

I would have been there except the guy I was going to run trade with had a head on collision. He was OK and it was the striking vehicle's fault. I would have went just out of curiosity. Not sure about how long I would stay if things were tightly packed, which is usually the case at a train show.
