The annual kick-off to the holiday season is coming soon. No, not the yearly fall visit of the Coastal Carolina Fair. I am talking about the Charleston Area Model Railroad Club’s train show. What would the holidays be without toy trains?

Model Railroad and Train ShowAs in past years, the show will be held at the Danny Jones Armory and Gymnasium, 5000 Lackawanna Blvd, North Charleston, SC 29405. This year looks to be a much bigger and better show with two buildings of vendors and displays. (Can we all get a shout of approval for the return of the displays?)

The dates of the show are Saturday and Sunday, November 8 and 9, 2014.

For more information, check out the Charleston Area Model Railroad Club’s website. You can also email them if you are interested in being a vendor.
