Held 3 times a year, the Great Scale Model Train Show is always a welcome and richly rewarding visual experience, no matter what the season.

Buyers:  Find all scales, high-rail, plastic to brass, locomotives to scenery; power, control and signals, books, maps, railroad art, reclaimed relics from the real thing  -all, are found in abundance, here, on hundreds of vendor tables and displays. The range of vendors includes renowned and expert modelers to hobbyists with a "few things to sell." Chances are that the thing you need -and the thing you didn't know you need- is here. Just thinking about the hobby? Or a serious modeler? Somewhere in between? This is YOUR show. Our world-class vendors and experts will offer their guidance and reasonably priced product to get you started or keep you on track.

Sellers:  An ideal, cost-effective way for vendors to reconnect with current customers, make new acquaintances, promote your store or Internet site, engage manufacturers, and share news and shop-talk with your peers. You'll appreciate the wide loading doors, large trolleys for moving merchandise, friendly and helpful show staff, free electricity, the low cost, and special vendor perks.
