What is the Train Show List?
The Train Show List was originally created by Ken Skopp and Bill Abraham of the Grand River Valley Model Railroad Club. Recently, Chuck White and Eric Smith have stepped in to help Bill Abraham manage this growing service. We have moved the mailing list to MailChimp to make it easier for you to manage your subscription. Every two weeks, we'll send out the events coming up, but the full list is always available on this site.
The newsletter will include events coming up in the next two weeks and the full list will be available here. We'll be expanding this website in the future to make it more personalized and useful.
Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org as to how we can improve this service.

Make a Donation
The TrainShowList.com site and mailing list are operated as a free service for railroaders all over the Midwest. There are some expenses required to keep the site up and running, such as domain registration fees and web hosting costs.
If you think the service is valuable for helping to promote your event, we would suggest a donation of $1-$5 per event you list here.
Submit an Event
Based on user suggestions, we're expanding the list to also include model railroad events like open houses, conventions, or operations-related events. These can be submitted along with any train shows. We are currently focused on the Midwest area but will be expanding as time goes on.
When submitting an event, please send the following information:
- Event name
- Event date(s)
- Facility name and address hosting the event
- Website for event, if any
- Event contact name
- Contact email and/or phone number
Please send this information to email@example.com as far in advance as possible.
