This first-class show features over 250 dealers bringing toy and model trains of all gauges and manufacturers as well as toys from all eras: plastic, tin, die-cast, pop culture and so much more! Free appraisals and repair advice on site will be offered as well as original parts for sale! There’s a wide selection of distinctive toys and trains at this show just waiting to be added to your own collection! Parents and grandparents will surely relive memories from long ago when they see many wonderful toys and operating displays from their own childhood. Bring along the kids and an extra special time awaits you showing the youngsters old-time toys in operation they would otherwise never see today.

Many famous layouts and exhibits will be operating all day long, including:

Must-see-to-believe operating “LEGO Big City” layout presented by the Michigan Lego Users Group. Featuring Toledo’s very own One Government Center Building! (This was the gigantic holiday Lego exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum and it’s returning to Toledo!)

The Toledo tradition lives on with Toledo Toymaster’s wonderful Tiedtke’s Department Store American Flyer antique operating post war “S” gauge train display!

Rare, operating 1950 Lionel Toy Train Store Display featuring original, antique post war Lionel “O“ gauge toy trains just as they used to run in store windows!
