Welcome to TrainShow.com, the new combined website for Greenberg shows, Great Train Shows, Great Midwest Train Show and the World's Greatest Hobby on Tour. We had planned to operate a limited number of shows for the remainder of 2020.
Unfortunately, the very recent spikes in Covid-19 activity have caused government and venue regulations to change. Agreements we had in place for show capacity will no longer be honored. Since we cannot provide a quality show with the new limitations, we have been forced to cancel all shows for the remainder of 2020.
All of these shows will be rescheduled to a later date and exhibitor payments will be moved to those shows, or a refund maybe requested. Given the current increasing uncertainty, we will not be releasing any future dates at this time. Please continue to check TrainShow.com for our 2021 schedule. Trainshow.com will be the first place we announce any information. We are hopeful that our Great Train Shows, Great Midwest Train Show and Greenberg Train & Toy shows will return in the first half of 2021. Our World's Greatest Hobby on Tour shows will not return until 2022.
We regret having to take this action. After a reasonably successful train show in Monroeville, PA in early November, we thought we were on the road back to running shows again. Unfortunately, we cannot control the spread of Covid-19, nor government regulations in reaction to the disease. We must follow the rules that have been put in place by the various state and county governments. We simply can not operate a show which is not safe for our exhibitors or attendees nor will we operate a show that does not provide the quality and value our customers deserve.
Our livelihoods, like those of many exhibitors, depend on the shows This situation has been challenging for our entire staff with furloughs and layoffs. We will be back in the show business as soon as it is practical, safe and legal to do so.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all endure this unprecedented situation.
Please stay safe and healthy.
