Photos From the Great Train Expo In Colorado Springs

On January 16th and 17th, the Great Train Expo paid a visit to Colorado Springs at the Phil Long Expo Center. This show was three months after the GTE in Denver at the National Western Complex.
Possibly because of this, the Colorado Springs event was about half the size of Denver's event in both the displays and sales booths. Similarly, the attendance was lower. Nevertheless, it was worth visiting, even if one has only a passing interest in model railroads. Here are some pictures of the modular displays, with special attention to some of the interesting landscaping.
