This is not a BAGRS-sponsored event, but BAGRS' Roving Garden Railway will be on display running trains.
The Train Collectors Association -- Western Division
TRAINS, TRAINS, TRAINS, AND MORE TRAINS!
You and your family are invited to attend the Toy and Model Train Expo, sponsored by the Nor-Cal Division of the Train Collectors Association.
The Expo will feature multiple operating train layouts, displays of toy and model trains, informative clinics, and train sales. All gauges and scales, from N through HO, S, O and G will be featured. Thomas the Tank Engine items will be available. Many train-related items, including artwork and clothing will also be offered.
When you enter the Expo, you will be invited to fill our a brief survey to be eligible to enter the Door Prize Drawing. It is anticipated that there will be door prizes similar in quality to those at the 2013 Expo. Those door prizes were four Lionel O-gauge “Thomas the Train” electric starter sets, two Bachmann deluxe HO gauge train sets and various train-related DVD's. The winners must be present at the time of the drawing, those times to be announced later. For photos of last year's door prizes click here.
Young Engineers may try their hand at actually running a TMCC Lionel train.
There will be free train appraisals for ticket holders on Saturday, 1-4 PM.
