“Trains at Christmas” is an annual model railroad swap meet and train show sponsored by the Sioux Valley Model Engineers Society. The show is held in the north section of the EXPO building located on the W. H. Lyon fairgrounds in Sioux Falls, SD. The dates for the 2022 show are November 19th and 20th and the hours are from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and from 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday. Admission is $7.00 for adults and children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

The event includes many functioning portable model train layouts from around the area and surrounding states. Other displays include small ‘Z’ scale through large ‘O’ scale trains. Included will be Lionel, American Flyer and LEGO layouts.

There will also be a number of vendors offering train related items. Presentations on railroading will be offered by Rick Mills, who is the Director of the South Dakota State Railroad museum. An additional attraction will be a display of doll houses presented by the Minnehaha County Mini Makers club. During the two day meet the Sioux Valley Model Engineers will have their club’s permanent layout open at no charge. That layout includes multiple operating trains and a recently completed large HO scale circus.
