The Train Collectors Association is one of the world's largest and most prestigious collecting societies.

National Convention

Conventions.

Each year, TCA holds a National Convention hosted by one of the divisions. Planning starts several years in advance. Hundreds of members from across the country and abroad attend to share ideas, renew acquaintances, and learn about what's new and old with toy trains. Each convention provides access to tours of local attractions, many train related, as well as a well-designed formal program.
