2022 EVENTS
January 8, 2022 - Sierra Division – 10:30 AM Online Meet. For information contact Chip Meriam at chipmeriam@comcast.net
January 8 & 9, 2022 - Saturday: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm; Sunday: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, Great Train Show, Cal Expo, 1600 Exposition Blvd, Sacramento, CA.  MAP

Show Freatures:
  • 2 PACKED BUILDINGS, each with 2 floors packed with trains!
  • 250+ Tables of Trains for Sale
  • 50+ Exhibitors from across the country
  • Huge Operating Model Train Displays
  • Free Workshops and Demonstration
  • Free Test Track - Test Run Your Trains at the Show
  • Riding train and Thomas the Tank Engine Bounce House for Kids!!
  • Free Door Prize Giveaways
  • and Much, Much More!!
Our Sacramento show will have several changes due to the State of California COVID-19 restrictions.
  • First, all exhibitors and attendees will need to comply with the state mask mandate.
  • Second, we have expanded the show hours on Saturday, to better provide for better social distancing
  • Third, we have changed the pricing to encourage attendance on Sunday. Because kids count toward the capacity limit, we have had to start charging for kids despite our strong desire to maintain our long standing policy of having kids be free.

We hope all these changes will just be for this show and the Covid-19 restrictions will soon be eliminated. While we know these changes are less than ideal, we believe this was preferable to canceling the show and having no train show for another year.

While we strongly encourage Covid-19 vaccination and testing for those who are not vaccinated, it is not required to attend the show.

Adult on-site Admission: $15.00 on Saturday, $10.00 on Sunday
• Kids on-site Admission: $10.00 on Saturday, $5.00 on Sunday

Cash only is accepted at the door.
