Golden Spike Enterprises, Inc. is proud to announce its 43rd Annual Jacksonville Model Train and Railroadiana Show and Sale. This unique event will be held this year on Saturday, February 5, 2022 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, 1000 Water Street, Jacksonville, Florida, 32204. This location is the former Jacksonville Union Terminal, conveniently located off the Forsyth exit (353A), I-95.
Over 300 tables representing dealers from all over the nation will have model items in all gauges and Railroad Antiques for sale. This is Florida’s largest combination show, displaying items for both the “modeler” and “railbuff” 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 and keys, calendars, timetables, signs or any other artifacts actually utilized by the railroads. Both collecting interests represent truly unique pieces of Americana. As an extra feature of this show, there will be a large working layout hosted by the First Coast Model Railroad Society and other working layouts for all to view during all open show hours. Attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Florida when the Seaboard Railroad, Florida East Coast Railway, and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad were king.
