Greenberg's Train and Toy Show
WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, December 11 & 12, 2010 - 10AM to 4PM both days.
WHERE: The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks, 100 Station Avenue, Oaks, PA 19456 (Montgomery County PA.) Located just off the Oaks Exit of Route 422, 20 minutes from Center City and just five minutes from King of Prussia.
DESCRIPTION: Model and toy train experts will be on hand with exhibits and informative demonstrations to entertain the whole family! The event includes operating train layouts in a variety of sizes and scales, how-to hobby demonstrations, tables upon tables of shopping at the hobby marketplace and much much more. Diehard train collectors and novice hobbyists will find it hard to resist the lure of the world’s greatest hobby!
Spend the day visiting operating train layouts provided by local toy train enthusiasts who represent a variety of scales and gauges. 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. 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 show has informative demonstrations and clinics scheduled throughout the weekend. There will be seminars on topics like starting a layout, developing scenery, and maintenance. If there isn’t a seminar geared to your question, all you have to do is ask.
The hobby market offers thousands and thousands of model and toy trains from all the leading manufacturers. Young “conductors” will find Thomas the Tank Engine on sale, plus everything needed to start their very first layout. Shop for scenery supplies, hobby tools, and the latest how-to hobby videos and publications. There will also be a huge selection of train parts, train accessories, and die-cast vehicles. The show is being expanded by 10,000 square feet just for this event, meaning there will be more layouts - more selection - more trains - more to see!
Admission for Greenberg’s Train & Toy Show is $7 for adults and admission is good for both days. Children 11 and under are admitted free!
