Train Shows to Return in 2021?
Posted by dlagrua on Saturday, October 17, 2020 8:53 AM

This Covid scare caused most all train shows to be cancelled this year. I particularly missed going to the Allentown First Frost show and wonder if it will be back for the Spring Thaw. The Greenberg shows seem to have also folowed suit. I'm starting to see some other hobby shows posted on the calendar for 2021 and advertising that they are on. The country can't be kept shut down forever, so my opinion is that they will be back next year.

I agree, this won't last forever.

My collectors club has a show scheduled for November 15th, see my post of September 26th, and we're planning others for 2021. 

Also, two of the club's members have gone to "open air" train shows sponsored by Renninger's Antique Market in Pennsylvania recently, so it appears shows are coming back slowly.  

I'll "bump" my 9/26 post to the top of the queue as the show date approaches as a reminder for everyone.

There have been some smaller outdoor shows while the weather has been nice here in Indiana.  I wasnt able to attend due to manditory overtime at work.  Parking lot trains shows selling out of your car/SUV might be the way things are in the warmer climates for awhile till things settle down.  I really miss the shows, the dealers I have come to know thru the years.  Many of which depend on selling trains to pay their bills.  Lets hope we can get back to some sense of normal soon.  Mikie
