As always, the train show promises plenty of fun for the entire family. Their promotion materials state,
  • A packed building full of dealers with ALL sizes & Scales
  • Over 300 tables with more than 50 exhibitors from across the country
  • Operating model railroads in many sizes and scales, highlighted with a 30' x 100' HO scale layout and a 90' x 90' G scale layout
  • Trains your kids can play with
  • Amazing LEGO train layout
  • A huge riding train for kids
  • Free workshops and demonstrations
  • Door prizes
  • Much, much more
This was the train show where I purchased a Rio Grande jacket for my dad. He looks really sharp in it! This exhibitor has no web presence. We have no way of ordering from him or contacting him without visiting the show to tell him what a great jacket it is. There are opportunities there that just don't happen anywhere else. This show is worth attending, especially if you never have gone before.

Adults are $7 at the door, and kids 12 and under are free. The show is open for 6 hours both days, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
