Thousands of model train and locomotive enthusiasts are expected to pull in to the station that is the Monroeville Convention Center this weekend.

Greenberg’s Great Train & Toy Show returns to 209 Mall Blvd. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

It’s one of the largest and longest running model train and collectible toy shows in the country, and typically comes to Monroeville three weekends a year.

The show was last in Monroeville in November. It featured eight operating train displays and more than 100 vendors. Between 3,000 to 4,000 people attended.

Some displays featured a North Pole Express or a Santa Express complete with a winter scene.

Pittsburgh S-Gaugers had an interactive train display with buttons children used to activate whistles, catch a mail bag, dump lumber and load coal.

Admission is $10 on Saturday and $9 Sunday. Children 11 and younger get in free. Parking is free.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
