Anyone else going to this and/or interested in model trains/dioramas? I remember up until I was about 14 yrs old or so going to something like that at a church I wanna say was on N Western. The amount of workmanship that goes into this is pretty amazing.

Is this the same show that used to be in December every year? I used to go to it with an older family member that was a big model train hobbyist.

No I'm talking about a model train show at the fair grounds that was I think the first weekend in Dec every year.

I used to love model railroading. And loved building and kitbashing structures. Back in August of 2009 we had a house fire in which we lost pretty much everything. Among the loses was a 43 year collection of HO model railroad rolling stock, structures, vehicles, scenery, railroad literature, etc.

There's no way to start over. I have recent catalogs from Walthers, and literature from Athearn, but it's too expensive to try to start over now days. But I do miss it.
