"This year marks the seventeenth year for the model train show and the popularity of this event still continues to grow. For many families, this has become a yearly event because it appeals to both the model train enthusiast and to those who simply have a love for trains or modeling,” commented Scott Berry, a show organizer. "The Lions Centre will once again be packed wall-to-wall with model train layouts, trains for sale and displays."
Whether you’re an avid train collector or just an armchair hobbyist the many train displays will provide exciting entertainment. The train layouts, which come in many shapes and sizes, are highly detailed with model buildings, scenery and special effects. Model trains and supplies will also be on sale.
