    This weekend from thw 7th. tp the 9th. of November the Toronto Hobby Show is on at the International Centre.
    I was there today Saturday. Many hobbies were represented from Robot Wars to quilting. Lots of cars, boats and aeroplanes and a few trains. I guess most are waiting for the Toronto Christmas Train Show that will be held on the 22nd. and 23rd. of this month.
    I did take a few photos so here they are
    The first is amazing models made out of paper. Kits were for sale

    If you ever need scale model ships these paper models are quite affordable if you have lots of time to put them together.
    It's really hard to believe they are all paper.

    The great S scale interactive modular layout was here.
    Kids can control trains and industries from control points around the layout.

    There were two groups of Ntrak modular railroads here. Some of the modules looked poor but the trains ran well. There were a few better modules I took pictures of and here they are.

    A Garden railroad group were there with this layout. A logging train first. I think it is a Heisler.

    And finally Thomas.
    The show and vendors are to be congratulated for having so many hands on things for kids and parents to do from playing with wooden trains to building and flying model airplanes. A fun time for all.
