Roberson Hosting Model Train and Doll Fair

Annual Event features regional collectors, great displays and plenty of items to buy, sell and trade!

Roberson Museum and Science Center will host Greater Binghamton’s largest train and doll fair on Sunday, January 8 from 9am – 3pm.  This year’s event features Roberson’s expanded model train layout now located on the first floor of the museum.  There’s even an opportunity to buy “real estate” on Roberson’s new layout.    

Visitors to the Model Train and Doll Fair can explore a variety of displays throughout the museum and Roberson mansion.  The event offers a great opportunity to meet dozens of local train and doll hobbyists while discovering new ideas to enhance personal collections. 

The fair highlights two great hobbies and visitors are encouraged to bring items from home to buy, sell or trade with the various vendors!

Roberson is also holding a raffle for a Thomas Kinkade Christmas Express Train during the event.
