National Convention


Each year, TCA holds a National Convention hosted by one of the divisions. Planning starts several years in advance. Hundreds of members from across the country and abroad attend to share ideas, renew acquaintances, and learn about what's new and old with toy trains. Each convention provides access to tours of local attractions, many train related, as well as a well-designed formal program.

The complete details and registration information for each convention may be found on our standard convention website
