Over 350 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 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 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 will be 10 large, award winning, working layouts with displays and clinics for all to enjoy during all open show hours. To be included are Dick Estes' Layout “The Great Dog Bone”, “Fun and Disasters” Layout, Safe Layout, The Greater Florida Lego Train Club large working layout and display and the Central Pasco and Gulf 7 ½” gauge train and others.
It's a pub crawl. It's a rolling TED talk. It's a Graham Dodds dining experience. It's all of these and more.
Enjoy custom made cocktails while listening to experts explain how electric buses can save profits, people and the planet. Meet Dale Hill, co-founder of Proterra, the largest electric bus manufacturer in the US. Chow down on a pop-up meal from culinary superstar, Chef Graham Dodds. Drink new voltage-charged cocktails from the Green Door, Harwood Tavern, and our own Live Wire Lounge.
We'll be using DART's downtown DLink loop, powered exclusively with Proterra electric buses to make the rounds. A ticket gets you three drinks, a meal and all the reasons why full electrification of local bus fleets will be great for public transit and the environment.
The ride begins and ends at the Green Door Public House in the Farmer's Market. First bus leaves 6:30.
Link Up. Get Lit. Stay Current.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) invite you to attend a public meeting about the second Dallas Central Business District (CBD) Light Rail Alignment, known as the D2 Subway.
Based on input received from the public, stakeholders and a recommendation by the Dallas City Council, the DART Board approved the Commerce Alternative (with Victory and Swiss connections) as the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA). This alternative, which is primarily subway-running, is being advanced through Project Development.
For the purpose of refining the project, we need your input on the questions listed below:
* What is your vision for a subway in Downtown Dallas?
* What issues are most important to you regarding the design, construction and/or operation of the D2 Subway?
Two Public Meetings will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 12:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.:
DART Headquarters - Board Room
1401 Pacific Avenue
Dallas, TX 75202
The same information will be provided at each meeting, and the slideshow will be made available immediately following the meetings at www.DART.org/D2. You can learn more and subscribe to project updates at this website.
