You do see folks doing the funky chicken a lot at train shows but usually it turns out to be the lines waiting for the rest room.

Jim,I don't know about the  funky chicken but,act like you belong and that usually works quite well.A little strut helps to makes them wonder who you are.

I hope the MR videos of the train show were filmed before the show was actually open for the public.  There is hardly anyone walking around.

There is hardly anyone walking around.

.

I was there on Friday after it opened to the public and almost all day Saturday. Except for Saturday morning, it was pretty sparse.

.

I have not seen the videos, so I cannot guess when they were filmed. My bet would be it was before the doors opened to everyone because that would be safer for all of the video equipment, and it would be easier to work and get the videos done.

.

I am going to post my overall experience in a couple of days... stand by.

I have watched the MRVP video now. I am pretty sure it was filmed mostly when the show was open to NMRA convention attendees only. I am basing that on the lanyards everyone in the background is wearing.

.

The show was much busier than that the entire time I was there.
