St. Louis Welcomes 59th TCA Convention

This week members of the Train Collectors Association and its Ozark Division will make their way to the Gateway Arch of St. Louis to convene for for their 59th Annual Convention, and it's going to be a week full of wonderful events and activities.

The TCA has awarded the Ozark Division the 2013 National Convention (59th). This will be our third National Convention in the St. Louis area. We hope that you join us to celebrate the Magic of Toy Trains June 22- June 30, 2013. St. Louis, the Gateway to the West, has a lot to offer the TCA members. The host hotel is the Millennium in downtown St. Louis and is on the riverfront (Mississippi River) and within walking distance of the Arch. The hotel has recently been renovated and offers a lot of space for the TCA. We have planned several great tours of local layouts, as well as many of the local sites for you to choose.

The 59th Annual TCA Convention is set to include a number of highlights, like the election of a new president, St. Louis attraction and area layout tours, an expanive trading pit, member auctions, the TCA President's public forum, and loads of other activities. Any model train collectors and enthusiasts in the area would certainly enjoy the event and get a great opportunity to join other railroaders doing what we all love. It's not too late to register and join in on all the fun. 

We'll be bringing you updates on the convention right here on DASH Flash throughout the week, so check back daily for further reading on this great convention.
