Great Train Show Fun

The family-friendly Great Train Show is ideal for both enthusiasts and the general public.

“The Great Train Show is the nation’s only coast-to-coast model train show,” according to organizers. “The show is designed for the general public, modelers, hobbyists, families, and the just plain curious. Each show features hundreds of tables of trains and accessories for sale, huge operating exhibits, activities for kids, and more.”

The event includes nearly everything you can imagine involving the world of model trains. Displays include intricate landscapes, cars and buildings, and educational seminars will help you learn to build your own functioning miniature railroad.

“Get a chance to see the only hobby where you can be the city planner, structural engineer, and conductor all at the same time,” according to Great Train Show planners.
