Vendors will be selling models, kits, books, videos, photos, Lionel and American Flyer train sets, lanterns, and other railroadiana on thirty-five tables or more. On display also will be a “V gauge” layout on a computer, a truly modern approach to model railroading.

The “Virtual Engineer” train-mounted video camera will be operating on the AVRA HO gauge modular layout, along with a variety of other trains. Several modules of an “On30” scale layout will also be on display. Small children can operate the train on a layout sized just for them.

New this year will be a “Make-And-Take” program for young modelers. They will be given a free boxcar kit to assemble at the show (with instruction) and can take it home afterwards.

Free parking is available to all.
