Welcome to the 38th Annual North Texas Council of Railroad Clubs Train show season.
For the 2022-2023 show season we are going to resume our normal schedule by having a two day show in the fall and another in January. The dates for the seventh annual Fall Plano Train Show are Oct. 1-2, 2022 at the Plano Event Center, 2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, Texas. The Dallas Area Train Show is returning to the Plano Event Center January 21-22, 2023.
Even with increased costs, we are able to continue to charge $70 per table for the 2022-2023 show year.
Parking at the Plano Event Center is still free!
Setup times for the Fall Plano show are Friday Sep. 30th from 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM and Saturday from 7:00 – 10:00 AM. Setup times for the Dallas Area show are Friday January 20th from 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM Saturday from 7:00 – 10:00 AM.
