2018 National Train Show Experience
This year’s big show was held in Kansas City. With Kansas City being the geographical ‘center’ of the U.S., I thought this would be a great show and would draw from all parts of the country, and I was right because folks from every corner of the nation attended. This annual event is the biggest ’traveling’ train show, as it is held in conjunction with the National Model Railroad Association’s annual convention. Next year it will be held in Salt Lake City with a nod to the sesquicentennial of the Golden Spike.
There was a lot of interest in our display of previously produced Walthers passenger cars, as I told of our future plans for RailSmith Models. I was overwhelmed with ‘ideas and input’ as many dropped their suggestions in my survey box. If you have not taken time to put in your two-cents worth, I am very interested in what passenger cars or decorations, that you would like to see produced. There is genuine excitement about the future of RailSmith!
