The news you won't find on the official site...

Trainfest 2010 was November 13 and 14.

Attendance: A new record was set, as announced after the show on Sunday there were 12,756 on Saturday, 10,720 on Sunday for a total of 23,476. Thank you to all who attended and exhibited and for making Trainfest the show that it is. There may be updates to this later.

And down in the Valley...
A broad group of partners is working to restore the neglected river valley at the very heart of Milwaukee. For updates visit the Menomonee Valley Partners, Inc.

Other/Old Schedule Board News:
A few years ago a show was cancelled, unknown to me and others, months after the flyers were out. This resulted in me getting a few nasty emails about not making the correction - even though I didn't know about it. So, be forewarned that the information I post is taken off of flyers I have now and if the dates are on them I have no reason to assume they will change. Just like if you pick a flyer up in a hobby shop.
