Area Activity Guide: Great Train & Toy Show

All Aboard!

There’s a model train extravaganza coming to town this March, and it’s taking place at the Rochester Dome Arena on East Henrietta Road. Greenberg’s Great Train & Toy Show is an opportunity to discover what the model-train hobby is all about and get a glimpse of the incredible layouts that devoted hobbyists are capable of creating. There are free workshops on basics like how to build a model railroad of your own, as well as more advanced skills like making your trains and layout look ultra-realistic. Kids will be excited to take a ride on the Indoor Riding Train and Interactive Slot Car Racetrack. The train show is designed for children of all ages; for modelers, collectors and enthusiasts; for families in search of good old-fashioned fun; and for the simply curious.
