Model Train & Railroad Show

Over 300 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale. This is Florida’s largest combination show, displaying items for both the “modeler” and “rail buff” alike all under one roof. The model railroader may choose from Lionel, American Flyer, LGB, Marklin or Ives Trains from the past or present. The rail buff may focus on dining car china, lanterns, switch locks and keys, calendars, timetables or any other artifacts actually utilized by the railroads. Both collecting interests represent truly unique pieces of Americana.

As an extra feature of this show will be 10 large, award-winning, working layouts with displays and clinics for all to enjoy during all open show hours. To be included are Dick Estes’ Layout “The Great Dog Bone”, “Fun and Disasters” Layout, Safe Layout, West Pasco Railroad Association, The Greater Florida Lego Train Club large working layout and display and the Orlando N-Track that the kids can help run.

All attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Florida when the Seaboard Railroad, Florida East Coast Railway and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad were King.
