YORK, PA- The York County Convention & Visitors Bureau this week welcomes back Train Collectors Association members for the second of two York Train Meet events held each year at the York Expo Center.

The three-day toy train show running today through Saturday features buying and selling of trains, accessories, clothing, books and videos as well as exhibits by manufacturers.

Combined with the group's event in April, approximately 24,000 people visit York County each year for the meets. This week's event alone will generate total economic benefits of approximately $8 million for the local community.

The York Train Meets are open to TCA members only but individuals who want to go to the show may become members on site if they choose. However, in an effort to promote membership, non-member toy train enthusiasts are invited to register and attend as one-time guests.
