Here, you can interact and mingle with expert modelers, observe operating layouts in N, HO and O scales, and learn how trains and railways work. There are also large-scale models that can run in your backyard.

The exhibitors’ booths showcase the latest projects. A model competition will be held, and awards are to be determined by vote by the members of the organization who are in attendance.
