Each show includes manufacturers, hobby shops, operating train layouts, interactive displays and workshops. Each show provides an in-person introduction to the World's Greatest Hobby; model railroading!

Since the shows began in December of 2004, over 1,300,000 people have attended. For most of these people, it was their first experience with model railroading. These shows broaden the exposure model railroading receives among the general public.

In the first quarter of 2010, the World's Greatest Hobby on Tour set a record with over 41,000 people attending the show in Washington, DC. This is the largest number of people ever to attend a model railroad show!
