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 updates@trainshowlist.com as to how we can improve this service.

Thank you!
Bill, Chuck & Eric
