we have a railfaire every year in november at the fairgrounds in the town where i live. i don't know how many square feet is involved but i suppose there's a website where you can find out how many vendors and modular layouts set up. i can tell you it takes over every available exibition space in the fair grounds where its held. then again its not a real big fair grounds, but there are at least five pretty good sized building involved.

its called international railfaire, although the only thing 'international' about it is one european train enthusiest club, in combination with the local division of the nmra and three or four other local railraod and model railroad societies puts it on. some of the vendors do have some none north american models and even a few specialize in them. the overwhelming majority don't however.

we have 3 train shows localy (with in a 50 miles/80kilometers of my house each year, the first one is in Nappanee over by Amish Acers in early March the one That is coming up in early july and another one in south bend somewhere in mid October, The largest that I know of is the one that is coming up in 2 days and 23 hours.
