Another great Deland Show coming up on the 12th—a week from Saturday—and hope that you can all make it.  Another great event put on by Golden Spike, the press release below.





Golden Spike Enterprises, Inc. is proud to announce its 48th FLORIDA RAILFAIR AND MODEL SHOW AND SALE. This event will be held at the Volusia County Fairgrounds, 3150 E. New York Avenue, Deland, Florida 32724 in the Tommy Lawrence Show Arena and the Talton Exhibit Hall on Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This location is conveniently located near I-4, at exit 118a.


Over 300 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale. This is Florida’s largest combination show, displaying items for both the “modeler” and “rail buff” 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 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 several large working layouts, including a G-scale layout with displays for all to enjoy during all open show hours. Also there will be a ride-on-train for the kids!


All attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Florida when the Seaboard Railroad, Florida East Coast Railway and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad were king.
