if you could only get to either the Fed show or the May one, which would you opt for?

Will there be fewer of the 'Craftsman Corner' dealers at the Feb show, with the Springfield show being so close?

No apparent answer.  Perhaps some of the southern based vendors would hesitate to commit to travelling at the end of January to Springfield, but would be more comfortable going to  Baltimore a week later.

On the other hand, some of the New England vendors may not want to deal with the grind of consecutive weekends, especially with the possible Super Bowl appearance of the Patriots that second Sunday.

I recall attending a Timonium show on a Super Bowl Sunday in which the Ravens were one of the teams.  Opted to take US 1 north to go home and after 5, there was zero traffic until reaching the PA line.

Look on the Great Train Show website.  They usually list vendors who've signed up.
