The 13th Annual NC Railroad Expo will be held Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the Hickory Metro Center. Approximately 250 tables full of railroad lanterns, timetables, books, and models of all scales will be available.
The show is sponsored by the Alexander Chapter of the National Railway Historical Association and all proceeds from the show will benefit the SE Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum located at the Newton depot.
In addition to vendors selling model trains, books, videos, and memorabilia, there will be five operating layouts from across North Carolina, a restored railroad baggage wagon, and a “Railroad Antiques Roadshow” table where the public can bring railway-related items by and have them appraised by experts in the hobby.
