From the Show website: Every November, over 20,000 modelers, families and the locomotively curious, converge in Milwaukee for a weekend of fun at America’s Largest Operating Model Railroad Show. What makes Trainfest so popular? It’s the amount of amazingly-detailed railroads, unique railroads, and variety of railroads—all under one roof. With 200,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space featuring more than 60 highly creative scenic railroads, it’s a sight to behold. There is a constant hum of enthusiasm that travels throughout the show. It’s in the air. Smiling faces are everywhere. Veteran Trainfest exhibitors, in particular, look on newcomers with fond nostalgia as they remember how amazing the event was during their own first visit. The imagination of a kid, or a kid-at-heart, is present in each of the layouts on exhibit. It’s amazing what modelers can do in transforming Styrofoam and plastic into beautiful countrysides. Many of our expert modelers were introduced and hooked on the experience of model trains as youngsters. For that reason, we cater to kids and their families. The family presence is very important at Trainfest and our kid-friendly activities ensure that all families will enjoy and feel welcome at the event. We strive not only to support today’s hobby of model railroading, but also to inspire the hobbyists of tomorrow. Whether you’re looking to expand your layout or just get started in the hobby, Trainfest is the place to be. We host over 100 manufacturers and hobby dealers, all showcasing the latest products and many offering great Show deals. The manufacturers and dealers have traveled far and wide to attend Trainfest and they are ready and willing to share product recommendations and tips. Unanimously their goal is to help everyone at Trainfest find just the right products for their railroading need—from beginner to railroading extraordinaire. Come, join us for a great ride and discover the magic of model railroading first hand. You’re sure to leave with an enduring memory, and you might just start a new family tradition.
