Welcome

Welcome to the METCA website.  We’re the Metropolitan Division of the national Train Collectors Association, a non-profit organization with a mission to develop an appreciation of and to preserve an important segment of history - Tinplate Toy Trains. Want to join the fun?  Just click on the membership link above!  

This is the website for all the news and happenings within our Division. We have a photo gallery here with photos from our recent and past shows and events. There's also a member's layout photo gallery. We'd love to add photos of your favorite piece or an article about your favorite restoration project – or any toy train topic!  If you’d like to contribute, contact our Webmaster at webmaster@metca.org.  

And don't forget to look for METCA at your local shows -- Greenberg, Westchester Toys and Trains, Dover Train o Rama and others.  

We're excited about the site and the continued growth of our Division and we hope that you will contribute to this growth.   Remember, this is your site so please enjoy it and come back often.
