If trains are a beloved hobby in your family, don’t miss the Great Train Show at the Ohio Expo Center on January 4-5, 2020. You’ll find tables of trains for sale, exhibitors from around the country, Model Train displays, and a Thomas the Train riding train for kids, plus door prize giveaways.
Spend the day at the Train Show visiting operating train layouts provided by local toy train enthusiasts who represent a variety of scales and gauges. See huge operating railroads that are intricately detailed to familiar local scenes of the past and present or that exist only in the designer’s imagination. You can also catch seminars on topics like starting a layout, developing scenery, and maintenance.
