The beginning of the York Train Meet

York Fairgrounds

The York Train Meet began in 1969 and has been growing ever since in popularity. I remember the stories the "old" members shared about the early days of York and the only hall open was the Blue Hall. Everyone would stand outside the door and when George Yohe opened the doors there was a mad dash to lay claim to the perfect location. Boxes were thrown in the doors with the hopes they'd land on a table and children were sent scurring under the legs of members with instructions to find a "good" location. York has come along way since those early days. Having expanded the number of halls, the Meet now uses eight buildings on the fairgrounds. With three dealer halls, 4 member halls and 1-2 operating layout halls the meet draws 13,000-14,000 members, families and guests in April and October. The best description from the first time attendee is - "I never dreamed I would ever see so many trains in one place". York is a one of a kind Meet. Members come from all over the world to upgrade their collection with that rare and unusual piece they've been searching many years for.

The vendors attending our Meet include manufacturers, train stores, benchwork builders, tool suppliers, scenery experts, auction houses, popular magazine publishers, and many more. Check out our Dealer Hall Charts for a list of the vendors. They too, come from all over the world to display and sell their wares.

The word on the street is - "if you can't find it at York, its not for sale". Check out the greatest train meet in the world, sponsored by the Eastern Division.
