WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Everything from vintage Lionel trains to new remote control helicopters were on display at the Toy & Train Show at the Westchester County Center on Sunday.
The show, sponsored by the Westchester Toy & Train Association, was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Two hundred vendors were on hand, along with 1,000 attendees. The association will also hold a show in December.
Bo McAlister, one of the vendors, was showing Lionel trains from the 1920s, including one that was modeled after a train that ran from Boston to Washington D.C. He was showing O gauge and standard gauge steam engine trains with their original set boxes and accessories, including a model of a tunnel.
Cagan Gurer was looking at the trains with his 3-year-old daughter, Defne. "She likes to see trains," he said.
Along one wall a vendor was demonstrating remote control helicopters, which flew overhead. Rick Paolella of Manorville, N.Y. purchased one such model. "It's an indoor version of a remote control plane," he said. "It's pretty cool, you can sit in the living room and play with it while you're watching TV."
Cars and other toys were included in the show, which has been held every year since 1983.
