For Hometown News

Golden Spike Enterprises, Inc. will host its 45th Florida Railfair and Model Show and Sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Volusia County Fairgrounds, 3150 E. New York Ave, DeLand in the Tommy Lawrence Show Arena and the Talton Exhibit Hall.

More than 275 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 "rail buff" alike, 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 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 three large working layouts, including a G-scale layout with displays for all to enjoy during all open show hours. Also there will be a ride-on-train for the kids.

All attendees will be able to relive the glory days of railroading in Florida when the Seaboard Railroad, Florida East Coast Railroad and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad were king.

Admission is $7, children younger than 12 are free. There is plenty of free parking available.

Discount coupons for $1 off admission are available on line at www.gserr.com.

For other details, call (386) 736 - 8185 and ask for Charlie Miller or Alan Altman at (813) 949-7197.
