If you’re looking for good old-fashioned family fun, then Portland’s miniature train expo is just the event you’re looking for this January.
The train show is designed for children of all ages, modellers, collectors and enthusiasts, or simply for the curious.
Each show will feature hundreds of tables of trains, accessories, scale models and collectible toys for sale as well as huge operating exhibits, activities for kids, free seminars, and educational opportunities.

At the show you can expect to see the best that the model railroad hobby has to offer: beautifully designed and built model train layouts in operation, scale models, new products, and collectible trains and toys from years past.
Each show features dealers from across the country offering special deals and products hard to find anywhere else. There are free workshops and seminars where you can learn how to build a model railroad of your own, how to use digital command control, or how to make your trains and layout look ultra-realistic.
And the best part? All of the expo’s shows are included in the ticket.
The best part about the expo is that you can even sell your old trains, and you don’t need to own a business or be a professional dealer in order to do so. More information on how to sell your old trains can be found on the website here.
