Thanks, Mixed Freight. Who knows what will replace the Avondale Train Show in that location? At least, we've got the Novi Train Show next month and a few others left.

The Avondale, aka Troy/Athens, before moving out to Avondale,train show along with the Gratiot Valley train shows were always the shows for me. When I moved to the Detroit area in 1997 and discovered the Gratiot Valley train show Macomb Community College, I was very impressed. Roll through the Holidays and into the Troy/Athens train show. At this point the wallet was hurting so much it could hardly handle the next Gratiot Valley show. Oh those were the days.

Looks like a pretty nice little show. Hopefully, somebody can take it over and either keep it there, or move to a new location if need be. And if a new location, choose wisely to keep the show valid. An unwise location will kill it off in short order.

Rest in Peace, Avondale Train Show

Andrew Steiner ·
Today, we celebrate the life of the Avondale Train Show that used to be held at Avondale High School in Auburn Hills, Michigan. I first heard the news that this past Sunday the 19th was the last time the show was going to be held there, since one of the members running it would be retiring that day. My family and I had been loyal customers going there and back for 8 years, and that Sunday was a day I will never forget.

Did y'all ever consider the thought of the seller is trying to SHOW the underside for reasons of perhaps minimal pickup roller wear, or at least to show the good/fair/crappy (take your pick) condition of the frame, or such? As for the train abuse stories....I couldn't disagree! The hard earned money spent, and then they are "tossed around". Boxes? Well.........some folks just don't know..........

Jimmy, I and most other sellers I have seen manage to show the bottom side of locos cars etc without stacking them or laying on track. You end up with very small contact patches of metal on metal or metal on plastic where the weight of the item is concentrated and more likely to damage the item. Even a sheet of cardboard between the pieces can go a long way towards preventing damage. j

Being stacked like cordwood, means being treated like a commodity. The words l most remember in a show are a dealer saying, "There is too much product out there." Made me think of cases of catsup in a big box stores. Apparent no interest in trains equals no knowledge about what is for sale....walk on.

My wife, a health care professional who has been to all types of train shows and other train related events, long ago observed that a large percentage of the population of folks attending train shows are not in the best physical shape (and sometimes are not in the best of mental health either). For some of these folks, walking around a train show might be the most physical exertion in their lives.

When I was in that small child mode my biggest problem was looking my wife in the eye (with 2 children, 18 months appart) and telling her I was going to a train show. That was just not a smart move. If the need to depart was due to business, ok, but toy trains? I don't think so. Until my kids were much more independent I just could not justify time away. I can't be alone with this situation.

My kids went with me, riding in a backpack baby carrier when little (the carriers were quite popular at the time). We also went to flea market / antique shows, and camera shows. The backpack had a metal frame. Once each kid was big enough, they used to push up on the frame to rasie themselves up hgher when they wanted a better look around

Train shows out here that get decent traffic are usually filled with "insiders" -- those already in the hobby. However, what gives me hope is the WGH show as it brings in families -- new blood for the hobby. Our chosen scale gets expensive and consumes a lot of space, so it's usually out of reach for the child-rearing age group until the kids are out of the house unless there's a local club within a reasonable (or sometimes unreasonable) driving distance. As more viable outdoor operating...

No, you are not the only one. I'd avoid these. (but I'm also an admitted condition nut) Probably trying to show wheel/roller wear for 2 of the pics, but to me the risk of additional scratches on the sides from the track (or other engine) it's set on would negate any positive from the rollers/wheels. That last one is just..... WHY????!!!! Take 2 separate pics and learn to merge them together on the computer if you are trying to fit that size image for some reason. It's sort of funny that the...

If I'm selling a lot of inexpensive cars I might carefully stack them to collectively show the underside. Only if they're all in the same condition. It's more efficient picture taking. Mind you, this is done so as not to abrase them and on a soft surface. I don't think this constitutes a biblical sin. What perturbs me more are out of focus pictures, especially if I'm really interested in the piece. Just as bad are pictures that were not properly rotated so as to be upright. If there's an out...

John, Having your first Lionel set, still, is a great feeling. I still have my first, 7th birthday gift, from 1959. At a local train show this weekend, I purchased another "same" engine as my first. I already have all the cars as my first set. I replicated my "first" set to run and keep the original set in as best condition as possible, after all it went through over the years of running and played with. The original set does run, but I feel it deserves being set "out to pasture" and finish...

Hi Dan, I've been to this site, Southern R.R. of New Jersey, a few years ago. At the time the Revel Casino in Atlantic City was being built and I was one of 400 electricians on the site. Anyway, this was actually my second visit to that R.R. I think that the pics that you see of the rolling stock & motive power are there for parts use. I know that when I was a fireman for the New Hope & Ivyland R.R. (#40) we used to keep similar "stuff", south of New Hope, on sidings for parts...

It took me half a day to remember that I technically qualify to reply to the question posed by this topic. I still have all the Lionel trains from my childhood, even though I don't use them anymore. However, they weren't my first electric trains. That distinction falls to a Marx set with fixed plastic knuckle couplers from the mid 60's. I want to say I got it for my fourth birthday. I loved that set to death for a year and a half, until Santa brought me a marine corps helicopter car, and it...

That's the way I explain all the new control systems. I tell them the new trains are radio control with cruise and digital recordings for sounds. And you can even control them with your smart phone. That gets them. Their eyes widen and they look at you and say with a questioning tone to their voice "REALLY ?" j

Train Shelves My train shelves are made in two sections each to allow moving thru doors. They also stand on the floor and are held to the wall by two 1" x 1" angles screwed into a wall stud. Construction is 1" x 4" (could be 6 inch wide) straight pine lumber with grooves routed in for train wheels. It is usually less expensive to buy 1x4x 8 ft common pine boards at Home Depot and pick through them to find straight boards. Knots are not that important to me as they can be filled in and...
