Atlanta Show

Dear friends and fellow historians and ferroequineologists:


Below is the press release for the upcoming 57th Annual Atlanta Model Train and Railroadiana Show and Sale.  Unhappily, and because this having to make a living stuff keeps interfering with what’s really important—such as being at many more of the shows sponsored by the famous “the boys”--and with classes beginning at Barry University on Monday, August 26th, there is just no way that I can make it this year but I seriously urge all of you to do your best to get to this great show.  You won’t be sorry and I know you will enjoy it.





Golden Spike Enterprises, Inc. is proud to announce its 57th ATLANTA MODEL TRAIN AND RAILROADIANA SHOW AND SALE. This unique event, formerly held at the North Atlanta Trade Center, will be held this year at our new and greatly improved location The Infinite Energy Forum, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, GA 30097 on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.


Over 325 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale. This is Georgia’s largest combination show, displaying items for both the “modeler” and “railbuff” alike all under one roof. The model railroader may choose from Lionel, American Flyer, LGB, Marklin or Ives Trains from the past or present. The rail buff may focus on dining car china, lanterns, switch locks and keys, calendars, timetables, signs or any other artifacts actually utilized by the railroads. Both collecting interests represent truly unique pieces of Americana.


As an extra feature of this show there will be six large working layouts for all to view and enjoy during all open show hours.


Attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Georgia when the Georgia Railroad, Seaboard Railroad and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad were king.


For other details or dealer information please call (813) 949-7197 and ask for Alan Altman.


Once again, this twice a year event will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 9:00am to 4:00pm at the Infinite Energy Forum. Admission is $9.00, children under 12 are free. Parking is free. For discount coupons go to for $1.00 off show admissions.
