The list posted on Jan 28 and quoted on Feb 17 omits the Franklin show on April 21 at the National Guard Armory. This show takes the place of the Martinsville show.

For those with an interest in small scale live steam running on 45mm(G scale) track, our steam group will be running on Jim Sanders portable layout at the Manual show on the 3rd of March.   As well as the Farm Toy Show in April that is held in Indianapolis.
