On April 12, 2014, the Alexander Chapter-NRHS will host the 12th Annual North Carolina Railroad Expo at the Hickory NC Metro & Convention Center. Located in Hickory, directly off I-40, and extremely convenient to Charlotte, Greensboro, Asheville, Greenville, and Roanoke.
Vendors will be stocking approximately 250 tables full of neat items, and over 1000 people are expected to attend the event- an amazing number for a one day show. Many dealers comment that this show is one of the best shows on the train show circuit.
All proceeds from the show benefit the museum and restoration efforts of the Alexander Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society.
