locked LAST reminder of the NEXT Timonium, Maryland train show on April 2-3, 2022
Just a little reminder of the NEXT Timonium, Maryland train show in suburban Baltimore, MD. on April 2-3, 2022
That's just 3 days away and this is the rescheduled date, originally slated for later in the month.
It will be at the sprawling Timonium Fairgrounds, and has easy access from either the Light Rail OR Interstate 83, just north of the Baltimore beltway, I-695.
Plenty of parking is also available and if you like OTB (off-track betting) for the ponies, you can go under the grandstand and play the them if you so desire. Personally I like the better odds of quality merchandise at negotiable prices.
There will be hundreds of tables, a bunch of modular layouts from various groups and the usual White Elephant table where one can be a party to the whole reason to go to these things: recycling.
Among the many items available from the many dealers around the rooms: books, magazines (both current and heritage type), videos, railroadianna, models, parts, and who knows what else one might encounter while there.
All the popular gauges will be represented: G, 1, O, O-27, S, HO, N, HON3, tt (?), and who knows what else? Plenty of narrow gauge materials and information should also be for sale.
There are often a number of regional railroad historical societies present also. Check 'em out when you can.
Yes, There is an admission fee but it is good for both days and families can get a group rate upon entering together. The hours are 9-5 Saturday with one-way traffic starting at 4 and Sunday hours are 10-4. If you go to the website you can get a discount by purchasing in advance and then get your wristband when you arrive.
Hope to see you there. The weather should be spectacular for us.
