Spring S Spree

The annual Spring S Spree is a gathering of American Flyer, hi-rail, scale, and narrow-gauge modelers. It is held for several days, and offers how-to clinics, vendors, operating layouts, local tours, etc. The event is hosted by one of three rotating clubs, namely the Central Ohio S Gaugers, the Cuyahoga Valley S Gaugers, and the Miami Valley S Gaugers.

Even though the NASG is not directly involved with Spring S Spree shows, we still wanted to have a page dedicated to this annual meeting, sharing what information we have collected from past shows, what is coming up this year, and which ones are already planned for future years. If you want to stay up on the latest related to Spring S Sprees, bookmark this page.
