Canada :The Train Show

This is what we went to Winnipeg for..the Train Show.  You see we are addicted..and should go into treatment. IMG_7176

I am not as addicted to the trains..as I am the road trips to the train shows that may or may not go right by an antique shop.

In Canada there were some really large scale trains.  We did manage to find a couple of O Scale Lionel cars. There were booths on two levels, which gave lots of space for layouts.

These are both some kind of cars that shoot missiles. I am not sure what they are doing in my windowsill. Resting perhaps. That is my Lionel box…I bought something for Far Guy the next day at the Train Show in Fargo, North Dakota.

Here is another purchase from the Winnipeg Train Show.   Far Guy has not taken it out of the box yet..so I didn’t either.

We got up early had breakfast and were at the train show just as it opened. I noticed a few people still say “A”  after every sentence.  Our waitress said “for sure” many times.  By the time we left town, I almost knew my way around town.

Onto the next Train Show in Fargo North Dakota.

This is the checkpoint at the border.  The lady that checked us through was really sweet.  She asked where we were from and what we did in Canada.  She ran our passports through some kind of machine…and we were told to wait.  So we did, then she handed back our passports and told us to have a good day:)

    A nice lady at the US border? Nice to know they finally hired one. We have always drawn the ones who know we are terrorists/druggies/leeches on society. They are disappointed to find we are law-abiding, church-going, charity-giving, tax-paying citizens.
