Podcast: Episode 13 - 2010 National Train Show announcements

The HO scale layout built by Railroad Model Craftsman magazine.The National Train Show was held in July 2010 in conjunction with the National Model Railroad Association's 75th annual convention.  This year I was able to talk to many of the manufacturers at the show and got some audio for everyone to hear with their new announcements.  Unlike the Trainfest episode last year, this episode has all of the audio in one long chunk.  This episode is about 5 times longer than usual, but here it is.

NOTE: The show notes are not yet complete.  I will be updating this page with links and photos as I am able, but this way you get to hear all of the announcements while they are still fresh.
