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.

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.
Long gone are the cracker-jack boxcars or half-hearted attempts to create quality locomotives and other rolling stock. Today, we have highly detailed models that are ready-to-run and highly detailed, to the point that rivet-counters are drooling! A newcomer to the hobby is 3D printing.
This and much more will be discussed, we invite you to join in the conversation by calling 646-716-7106.
This week, Kansas City Nathan will be live at the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's Model Train Show, at the SilverRails Country Event Center in LaPlata, Mo.
