The Christmas Train Show Returns this Coming Weekend!

Click on each image for a closer look!
In the Toronto area, there is only one major Train Show annually and it is held at the end of November at the International Centre across from Toronto's International Airport.
The TRHA will once again be present with our booth to make the visiting public aware of the great progress that we have made in the past year. We will also be exhibiting our Sweet Creek miniature steam engine which you can see in the picture by Stephen Gardiner at the below left being loaded onto a trailer for transport to the train show. The other pictures show parts of last year's TRHA exhibit, our speeder on show as well as one of the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers' nimiature steam engines.
Here is what the show organizers say about this year's show:
"All Abooarrd..... We are pleased to announce that we have been able to secure space at the International Centre for November 21 & 22, 2009. This will enable us to produce Canada's largest train show. You will be amazed at the over 50 displays and operating layouts in every gauge of trains. There is about 70,000 square feet of layouts, exhibits, clinics showing how to build layouts and scenery, toy trains, steam engines, videos, real roadania, photos, prints, books, apparel, Railway Historical Associations and Train Vendors of all kinds. WHEW!! It is some great show. Come and renew those magical memories of our train sets of old or come and get started on a layout for the grandchild (Ok maybe yourself). This is great family fun for all. This will be our 14th annual TORONTO CHRISTMAS TRAIN SHOW."

The show dates and times are:

Saturday, November 21, 11 am - 4 pm
Sunday, November 22, 10 am - 4 pm

The show will be located in Hall 3 at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd., Mississauga which is just north of the Toronto International Airport.
