    Model Train Shows: Are They Good or Bad For The Hobby?

    in Hobbies

    This time on the APRHF's Let's Talk Trains Show we will take a look at Model Train Shows. 


    We will ask you, the listeners, what makes a great train show? What makes a bad one? Does having a swap meet at the show, make the show feet cheap? Why are there not more manufacturers's coming to the shows Should model train shows be produced by for-profit companies instead of the local clubs or historical associations? Should there be more regional cooperation between organizations? Should we just have swap meets and then do a show with just model trains? Should we let attendees operate displays? 


    Call in at 646-716-7106 and give your views.

    in Hobbies

    Model Railroading has been a popular hobby for many decades. This week, Kansas City Nathan, a model railroader himself, will be discussing the Model Railroading in the 21st Century.

    This and much more will be discussed, we invite you to join in the conversation by calling 646-716-7106.
