The Mission of Vancouver Train Expo is: "To provide a show for the public and modelers that is interesting and interactive while encouraging and displaying best practices of model railroading through clinics, tours, contests, and vendors."
Vancouver Train Expo is an annual model railroad public show that is sponsored by the National Model Railroad Association (Canada), and organized by a volunteer committee of the 7th Division, Pacific Northwest Region NMRA. The show is traditionally held on the weekend closest to Remembrance Day in November of every year.
The two-day public show is open to the general public as the name would suggest.
