All aboard! For the most fun on two rails, model train enthusiasts know there’s no place else you can choo-choo-choose to be in B.C. but at the annual Vancouver Train Expo.

Now in its 37th year, the popular gathering is B.C.’s biggest train show, and it’s pulling into the Forum at the PNE once again on the Remembrance Day long weekend.

Train Expo offers a great day out for families, hobbyists and train enthusiasts with a broad range of activities for everyone.

Kids will want to hop aboard the Thomas & Friends “run a train” railway, and everyone will love the numerous collectible and heritage model train set ups – there’s going to be a whopping 100-plus scale miles worth of railway all in one building.  Shoppers and collectors will love the Train Marketplace, too.
