GOOD NEWS - Train shows resume on 11/7/2020 

TRAIN SHOW UPDATE - 10/19/2020

As of this date we are announcing that we will begin operating Train Shows on 11/7/2020. We will be operating a limited number of shows for the reminder of 2020, and hope to have a preliminary schedule for 2021 available by 12/1/2020. We know this is short notice for shows but the current Covid-19 situation and its related uncertainty makes it impossible to schedule further in advance at this time.

For the remainder of 2020 we have 3 shows which we can confirm at this time. They are:

  • Nov. 7-8, 2020 – Greenberg's Train & Toy Show – Monroeville Convention Center – 209 Mall Boulevard, Monroeville, PA
  • Dec. 5-6, 2020 Great Train Show – Dayton, OH – Montgomery County Fairgrounds – 645 Infirmary Road, Dayton, OH
  • Dec. 12-13, 2020 Great Train Show – Indiana State Fairgrounds – 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, IN

In addition, we have 2 shows which we are currently planning and awaiting approval. While we are not yet confident to confirm these shows, we are hopeful that we can obtain the necessary approvals to operate these two shows:

  • Nov. 28-29, 2020 – Greenberg's Train & Toy Show – New Jersey Expo Center – 97 Sunfield Avenue, Edison, NJ - Show will be confirmed or cancelled by 11/10/2020
  • Dec. 19-20, 2020 – Greenberg's Train & Toy Show – Dulles Expo Center – 4320 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, VA - Show will be confirmed or cancelled by 12/1/2020

We are continuing to exam potential venues and shows as circumstances change. It is possible that we will add more shows in 2020 if we can find locations where regulations and conditions permit us to do so. If is also possible that we may have to cancel a show if regulations are changed that are beyond our control. Our most current and detailed information is on our website, we urge you to check it regularly for more information.

You can expect to see more Great Train Shows and Greenberg Train & Toy shows in the first quarter of 2021. Our World's Greatest Hobby on Tour shows will not return until 2022. Our Great Midwest Train Show will return when Illinois increases the permitted indoor gathering number, which we are hopeful will occur in early 2021.

As a reminder please refer to for the most up to date information, it will be our main communication vehicle going forward. The Great Train Show offices have been consolidated with the Greenberg show offices, for the 2020 shows please use the website, contact us via email at or phone at 630-279-4087.

We are thrilled to be back to running shows and appreciate your support during this very difficult time.

The Great Train Show is the nation's only coast-to-coast model train show. The show is designed for the general public, modelers, hobbyists, families, and the just plain curious. Each show features hundreds of tables of trains and accessories for sale, huge operating exhibits, activities for kids, and more. All aboard!

The Great Train Show is a production.


Our mission is to promote the hobby of model railroading.
