Hi-Rail & Collectors Train Show are held  in Timonium, MD in February, April, June, & October.
The same admission that formerly gave you only the Great Scale Model Train Show now includes the new Hi-Rail & Collectors Train Show at no extra cost.  Two huge shows for the price of one!

Our new Hi-Rail and Collectors Train Show  welcomes the rapidly expanding hobby created by the new lines of excellent Hi-Rail models.  It also embraces the traditional hi-rail and tinplate that originally made model trains so popular.  Yes, this show has Lionel, American Flyer, and the other train collectibles as well as all the newest M.T.H., Rail-King, new Lionel, S Helper Service, and other modern Hi-Rail products.  Also see many operating displays of both old and new Hi-Rail and tinplate trains.

In February, April, and October this show will occupy the previously unused North Wing of the Cow Palace in Timonium.  In June it will share space in the smaller air-conditioned Exhibit Building.  

Visit and revisit the White Elephant Tables throughout the weekend.  Here you'll find bargains buried in the boxes.  Merchandise is always changing as show patrons drop off their items all weekend long!  You can clean out your closet too and sell your stuff.  Commission is only 15% and you can make some cash while you enjoy the show. 

All of the shows we operate are "Juried."  The Management and Staff of our shows "Jury" the content of  each show.  That is, prior to registering a vendor, display or clinic for our show we ensure that the content is appropriate for the show.  We also monitor all participants during setup to ensure they adhere to the standards of content agreed to at the time of registration. 

We owe this to you, our customer, to ensure you experience a show of the highest quality, uncluttered by inappropriate merchandise  or other content.  

You will find scale trains at our Great Scale Model Train shows and all other trains & train collectibles at our Hi-Rail and Collectible Train Shows.
