Don’t Miss the Famous H & R Train Show
The 63rd H&R Train Show will be held on October 5th, 6th, and 7th at 6901 US Hwy. 19 N. in Pinellas Park. This show provides exhibits of every scale of model railroading and is also a layout competition among all of those who participate. This show is not the usual “flea market” of train sellers. Thousands of customers travel from all throughout Florida and from other states to attend this event; they can view all of the exhibits and layouts under their huge circus-type tent. All of it is free to the public, to model railroader enthusiasts, to the vendors and manufacturers who participate, and to children of all ages.
There are a larger number of model-train-industry vendors who use this three-day train show to display their latest products to the 10,000-plus people in attendance. The show will be held on their store grounds on Friday from10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Included in the weekend events will be “how-to” classes, as well as seminars on model railroad topics and demonstrations of new products. H & R Trains awards over $1,500 in prizes and ribbons to entrants of all ages in their layout competition. Also, door prizes will be drawn between each seminar or special event throughout the three-day show. For any questions please contact either Alice or Don Morris at 727-526-4682.
