Description
This will be our 3rd annual Railroad Memorabilia Show. The show will be held on August 26, 2018 from 10 am to 5 pm. 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 (Dinner Ware) that was used in the dining cars, railroad lanterns, paper work from different railroads, conductor hats, engineer hats, etc. Some items will be for display only by private collectors and some items will be available for purchase.
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.
See the Collinwood Engine 999. This is a replica of the famous New York Central engine that in May of 1893 set the land speed record of 112.5 mph.
This will also give us a chance of showing off the progress of restoration that is taking place at the Depot.
If you have items that you wish to display or sale, visit our web page for information.
This program is funded in part by a grant from The Lake County Visitor’s Bureau Arts and Culture Fund to further participation in, and awareness of, arts and culture in Lake County, Robert S. Morrison
