 Trains Logo

There is currently NO Vancouver Train Expo 2017.
VTEX 2017 is on hold as it is too much work for the existing management group, as well as too risky to continue given the possibility of illness or other events that might sideline a member.
There are looking for people to join the committee to help run the show.
They need at least four people for the Organizing Committee as well us up to eight additional members to help with running the event.
If you are interested in helping out please let us know and we will pass your contact information on to the current committee.
