The Great Train Show is chugging into Canterbury Park this weekend, giving you a chance to see what the world of miniature railroading is all about.

The event—set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday, Nov. 4, and Sunday, Nov. 5—offers a multitude of models, an array of exhibits, several seminars, and much more.

“Spend the day visiting operating train layouts provided by local toy train enthusiasts who represent a variety of scales and gauges,” organizers said in a release. “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.”

Among the highlights of the event:

  • Demonstrations from model and toy train experts
  • Operating train layouts
  • How-to seminars on scenery, maintenance and more
  • Train Show Canterbury 4Thousands of model and toy trains for sale

There will be 50-plus exhibitors from across the nation at the event, as well as free door prize giveaways, free workshops and displays of all sizes. It is the country’s only coast-to-coast model train show.

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