Railroad Memorabilia Show

This will be our 1st annual Railroad Memorabilia Show.

The Railroad Memorabilia Show is designed to have collectors show off their private collections of railroad related items.

These could be from railroad signals, plate setting ware that was used in the dining cars, railroad lanterns, paper work from different railroads, conductor hats, engineer hats, etc.


By displaying Railroad Artifacts, we can provide the history of Railroading and how it had a great influence on our history and the importance that the Painesville Depot once served.

Some items will be for display only by private collectors and some items will be available for purchase.

This show will provide the history of the Painesville depot from 1851 to present and how the railroads has influence the City of Painesville and our nation.


 This will also give us a chance of showing off the progress of restoration that is taking place at the Depot.

Rail Fanning Days:

Rail Fanning is the hobby of taking pictures of real trains as they are running on the tracks.
Many times you get to see very rare and unusual trains and engines.
Some people post them on the web and a train is tracked across the country.
