All aboard! It’s time for the Buckeye Model Train Show!

The 63rd Buckeye Model Train Show and Sale is coming to the Ohio Expo Center (717 East 17th Avenue Columbus) this Saturday Apr 21 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

This is Ohio’s largest combination show, displaying items for both the “modeler” and “rail buff” alike all under one roof. Over 275 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale. 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 there will be several large working layouts, including Central Ohio N-Scale, and the TTOS Buckeye Division layout and a large G-Scale layout with displays for all to enjoy during all open show hours.

All attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Ohio when the Baltimore and Ohio, Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central Railroad were king.

Admission is $7 and children 12 and under are free! $1 off coupons are available at
