Kensington, MD: Model Trains Are Coming to Town

This news is from Sept 8, but its's an introduction to the National Capital Trackers, so I share it here.

From the Kensington, MD Patch: Model Trains Are Coming to Town
This weekend, town hall will be transformed into a train station.

A miniature one, at least.

On Saturday and Sunday, the National Capital Trackers will bring a collection of model trains to town for "All Aboard to Kensington," a celebration of the 120th anniversary of the town's train station.

The exhibit is 40 feet wide and 68 feet long, featuring two turntables, five main lines, and numerous trains running at once.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $2 for children and $10 for families. You can see the trains from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

All of the event's proceeds will be split between the Noyes Library Foundation and the Kensington Historical Society.
