This is most certainly not a model show to my experience. This show consists of railroadiana like timetables, lanterns, china, silver, books, builders plates, etc. The models that I have seen over the years consists of a dealer or two with mostly Lionel stuff. At the last show in 2019, I carried a bunch of models for the Society, higher end stuff like Scaletrains SD-40-2s and had virtually nobody even bothered to look at them.
Not saying they were not there, just not much. However, if you want to see museum grade materials, mostly for sale and literally a few tons of stuff, it is worth the effort.
I’ve been going to this show since the early 1980s, just my experience.
However the Society will be there, if there is anything someone wants to order that we can bring to save you shipping, please email me at miller at nwhs.org.

Does anyone know how much model train stuff is at this show as compared to specialty model RR shows, e.g., Greenberg’s Train & Toy Show (Dulles Expo Center in December), that emphasize model railroading.

>> It's THIS week and this coming Weekend! It's almost here.
>> Back again after a one-year absence .................
>> For the first time in TWO years, the Gaithersburg Railroadianna show will be held at the Montgomery County, Maryland fairgrounds on November 5-6-7; Friday-Saturday-Sunday. Yes, it will cost you more to get in Friday and Saturday if you want to "cherry-pick" the goodies FIRST, but if you are an advanced collector or interested individual, it can easily be worth it with one big yummy deal.
>> I suppose most of the usual suspects will be in attendance including several railroad historical societies. In the recent past years, the B&O, C&O, Southern, SAL/ACL, NRHS, R&LHS and a few other railroad historical societies have been there with their goodies.
>> The N&WHS will be there and have the newly revised 6-1-1 book available for sale and perhaps some other treasures just in time for the holiday season.
>> Railroad China is also there and if the RR made it or issued it, it’s likely to be there in one form or era or another.
>> Books, magazines, videos, builder's plates, timetables, annual reports, photographs of all sorts, what have you and the list goes on and on. There is also usually other transportation material from steamships and aircraft as well. Videos and other goodies should also be there too.
>> If you only want to attend Sunday, which is the general public day, the admission cost is about $10 and those hours are 9-4.
>> No football sports should be conflicting as the Washington Football team has their bye week then and Baltimore plays a night game.
>> So guys, this is your final reminder
>> Hope to see you there.
