This show attracts mobile operating layouts from the tiniest - "Z" scale - to the biggest - "G" scale. Most of these were built are are operated by clubs that love to display their artistry to the public. Some are highly detailed and realistic, others tend more toward fun and whimsy, but all of them are entertaining. You can spend a lot of time noting every detail or simply enjoy the sight and sounds of model trains of every size, shape and description on layouts big and small.

In 2014 expect to see more than a dozen operating layouts including G, HO, N and Z scale. Also included is a LEGO train layout, a "kids - run - the - train" layout and a Thomas the Tank Train play table. There will also be a display by of very large 1 1/2-inch scale locomotives that run on 7.5 inch wide tracks, including an F-7 A/B diesel and a 4-4-0 American steam engine.

BONUS! One fully detailed and operational 4 X 8 HO Layout will be raffled off during the weekend!
