We were at the Tucson Toy Train Show on Nov 9th and 10th. Our display was (for us) a mid sized display. It was 15′ x 20′ in size and had 3 different tracks with plenty of spurs for parking tranis. There weren’t very large crowds, but there was a steady stream of people coming by our display. Here are some pictures of our display.
