First held in Sacramento, Cal., in 1978, Winterail is the original railroad photography exposition and railroadiana show & sale. Created by Dave Stanley, producer of the show from 1978 to 1993, we are proud to have  pioneered the concept of multimedia slide presentations by the hobby's best photographers. In 1979 the show  moved to its longtime home in Stockton, Cal. (with two detours to Modesto), and in 2016 we moved to our new home in beautiful Corvallis, Oregon.

Produced by Vic & Annie Neves and our awesome team of roadies, including the multi talented Evan Werkema (Associate Producer), every Winterail features an outstanding lineup of digital presentations from top rail photographers, plus a quality railroad collectibles show for the discerning railfan. Don't miss the fun!
