Our past exhibitions have seen, on average, around 1200 very happy people
passing through our doors and we host around 40 exhibitors from around the
state and interstate over three days. We are looking forward to our second
exhibition at the McIntosh Centre this year and are sure everybody who comes
along will enjoy the trains with us!
