Presented by Golden Spike Enterprises.

Over 275 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale.  This is Ohio’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 & keys, calendars, timetables or any other artifacts actually used by the railroads.  Both collecting interests represent truly unique pieces of Americana.

As an extra feature of the show there will be several large working layouts, including a G scale layout with displays for all to enjoy during all open show hours.

All attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Ohio when the Baltimore and Ohio, Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central Railroad were king.

Wheelchair Accessible.

Discussion of the design and construction of small and modular model railroad layouts.  We encourage everyone to bring something to share if you can.  The meet is all about meeting others with similar interests, sharing modeling techniques and theories of smaller layouts---table tops, shelf layouts, micro layouts, pizzas, modules and modular layouts--and how they can be designed and built for enjoyment and model satisfaction.

*Micro Layouts
*Modular Layouts
*Display Layouts
*Table Top Layouts
*Quarter Scale Train Rides
*Lionel Layout
*HO Layout in Progress
*Discussions on Techniques
*Foam Core Layout
*Exhibition Style Layouts
*Discussions on Layout Lighting

The Small Layout Design Meet is about promoting the design and building of small, micro, exhibition and modular layouts.  It is a meet by modelers for modelers.  This is a grass roots project from those who enjoy the small layouts and share them with others.

2014 is the second year for the Small Layout Design Meet.  The objective is to raise awareness of small and modular model railroad layouts and the enjoyment they can bring.  We hope to expand the show in the upcoming years to include more layouts and move towards an exhibition style show.
