You may spend the day visiting operating train layouts provided by local train enthusiasts who represent a variety of scales and gauges. Attendees will see operating railroads that are detailed to familiar local scenes of the past and present or that exist only in the designer’s imagination. Also, participants will get a chance to see the a hobby where you can be the city planner, structural engineer and conductor all at the same time.

There will be seminars on topics such as starting a layout, developing scenery and maintenance. If there isn’t a seminar geared to your question, all you have to do is ask.

The hobby market offers thousands of model and toy trains from leading manufacturers. Young “conductors” will find Thomas the Tank Engine on sale, plus everything needed to start their first layout. Shop for scenery supplies, hobby tools and the latest how-to hobby videos and publications. There will also be a huge selection of train parts, train accessories and die-cast vehicles.
