Collectors and dealers from all over the western United States are coming to the International Agri-Center at 4500 S. Laspina Street in Tulare.

Of special interest to Lionel train enthusiasts is Mike Marple who will have a corner of the hall with tables covered with bins of train parts.
Plus there will be model train clubs from central, northern, and southern California with their operating model railroads in Standard, O, S, HO & N gauges; that means toy trains in action with unique displays and plenty of action.
