Youngstown, OH: Model Railroad Flea Market Held

You've missed it this year, but put it on your calendar for next year:
From WKBN 27: Model Railroad Flea Market Held

Hundreds attend a bargain event for a popular hobby in the valley.

The Youngstown Model Railroad Association held their annual flea market, complete with merchandise and equipment for all model railroad interests.

The event is the main fund raiser for the Railroad club and it will support their club rooms and layouts. After experiencing record attendance at open houses held last year, members were expecting over seven hundred people at the flea market.

"One thing it proves is there's still a lot of people interested in trains and equipment for model railroads and prototype equipment. EVen though the economy's down, there's still looking for bargains. This is where you'll find it.", explained James Pope, Chairman of the YMRA flea market.

This year's market is the biggest one yet in terms of merchandise and vendor tables.
