The Cannonball Express 2023!

The Sunrise Trail Division welcomes you to the Cannonball Express Convention 2023, which will be held at the Long Island Marriot, in Uniondale, NY.

The convention will take place over the Columbus Day Weekend, from Thursday October 5, 2023 through Sunday October 8, 2023.

In the New York City and Long Island region   —   the Sunrise Trail Division   —   nothing is an understatement. It is home to the country's busiest commuter railroad, the busiest Amtrak station, and the busiest subway system. And, it is home to great model railroading. The Cannonball Express is shaping up to be one of the most exciting conventions that will help you build and enjoy a better model railroad. See the prototype and visit or operate on some of the region's best layouts. And, it's not far from Broadway, and not far from the vineyards of Long Island's East End.

So put the Cannonball Express in your calendar, and join us for a long weekend of clinics, layout visits, operating sessions, prototype and non-railroad activities.

Activities begin on Thursday October 5, 2023, and wind up with the Awards Breakfast on Sunday morning, October 8, 2023 - leaving you Sunday for activities and travel home - as well as a day off on Monday! Many activities will be available to you, including a myriad of clinics at the hotel, and both prototype and non-rail related tours.

Stay tuned as additional activities become available!
