Genesee Society of Model Engineers

The Great Batavia Train Show

Our 2021 spring show has been cancelled due to restrictions imposed by the Corona (COVID-19) virus.

Our Fall 2021 show is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 17th, 2021

Sponsored by the Genesee Society of Model Engineers Inc.

For over 40 years the Great Batavia Train Show has grown to become one of the premier hobby events in Western New York between Buffalo and Rochester. Over 100 dealers along with railroad modeling and preservation societies participate. All forms of model railroad and train-related merchandise are available. Items offered include all scales of model trains, clothing, historic railroad items, books, videos and toys. Train layouts, modeling demonstrations, and door prizes featuring great railroad items, are part of the fun. Free parking and snack bar are available on-site.

The GSME sponsors two shows per year; one in the spring and the other in the fall. Our spring event is typically held on the last Sunday in March. Exceptions occur when this date conflicts with Easter Sunday. In those cases, the show is held on the first Sunday in April. Our fall train show is scheduled for the second Sunday in October.

Each show is open to the public from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Information on vendor table availability can be obtained by contacting us at

Stay tuned for future dates.
