The Great Train Expo Steams Into Norcross This Weekend

The Great Train Expo, the nation’s largest coast to coast model train show steams into Norcross, GA this weekend! The show is Saturday & Sunday, October 27 & 28, 2012 at the North Atlanta Trade Center.

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of miniature railroading October 27th & 28th at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross, GA! Model & toy train experts will be on hand with exhibits and informative demonstrations to entertain the whole family!

The event includes operating train layouts in a variety of sizes and scales, how-to hobby demonstrations, tables upon tables of shopping at the hobby marketplace and much much more.

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. Get a chance to see the only hobby where you can be the city planner, structural engineer, and conductor all at the same time.

You can also experience the “Green Train Express”! This is the world’s only HUMAN POWERED model train set. There are regular demonstrations and ever the opportunity for attendees to get on the bike and power this One-Of-A-Kind layout!

Kids will enjoy the riding train and young children love the Thomas the Tank Engine play area!

The show has informative demonstrations and clinics scheduled throughout the weekend. There will be seminars on topics like starting a layout, developing scenery, and maintenance. If there isn’t a seminar geared to your question, all you have to do is ask.

The hobby market offers thousands and thousands of model and toy trains from all the leading manufacturers. Young “conductors” will find Thomas the Tank Engine on sale, plus everything needed to start their very first layout.

Shop for scenery supplies, hobby tools, and the latest how-to hobby videos and publications. Everything from collectable Lionel to brand new items.

Admission for the Great Train Expo is $7.00 for adults and admission is good for both days. The family fun is from 10:00am – 4:00pm both days. Children under 12 are admitted FREE.

Nice to publish this 4 hours before the event ends. It would have been nice to know about sooner!
