Richard Thomson Memorial Train Giveaway

Periodically, throughout the year, AGTTA sponsors a Richard Thomson Memorial Children's Train Set Giveway. A complete train set is given away free when a lucky child's name is drawnThere is no purchase necessary; all a child (under 18) has to do is get a ticket when visiting the All Gauge Toy Train Association (AGTTA) train set up
Fill out the ticket with your first name, a phone number and date so we can call you.  You can get a ticket from someone at the dog bone layout ONE ticket per person.

This is just a way for some of our members to give back to the children.

Thanks to our sponsors Lionel LLC and members of AGTTA.

The next train giveway will take place at our December Annual Open House and Toy Train Meet on Saturday, December 9th.  One lucky child will take home the complete train set and accessories pictured  below.
