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 be bringing one of our diesel-electric engine simulation systems to the show as well to entertain the visitors and promote the museum. 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 19 & 20, 2011. 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, 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 16th annual TORONTO CHRISTMAS TRAIN SHOW."
