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.
