Parking is free. Discount tickets are available online.

Old-Fashioned Family Fun

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of miniature railroading at the train show! The train show is designed for children of all ages; for modelers, collectors and enthusiasts; for families in search of good old-fashioned fun; and for the simply curious. Each show features hundreds of tables of trains, accessories, scale models and collectible toys for sale as well as huge operating exhibits, activities for kids, free seminars and educational opportunities, and much more.

Visiting the Train Show

There’s plenty at the show to see and do. You’ll see the best that the model railroad hobby has to offer: beautifully designed and built model train layouts in operation, scale models of trains, cars and buildings, new products and collectible trains and toys from years past. Each show features dealers from across the country offering special deals and products hard to find anywhere else. There are free workshops and seminars where you can learn how to build a model railroad of your own, how to use digital command control, or how to make your trains and layout look ultra-realistic. Our shows are designed to promote model trains to even the youngest enthusiast, and many of our shows have a riding train within the show for kids to ride or have interactive exhibits where kids can operate part of a layout or race model trains or cars.
