Family Model Train Show October 7 & 8, 2017

 

The 27th annual Greater St. Louis Metro Area Model Train Show will be held at the Kirkwood Community Center on October 7 & 8.   St. Louis’ best “home grown” model train show organized by one of the area’s oldest model train clubs.  This is a family event and all children attend FREE.  The show features an entire gymnasium full of operating model train layouts and a second gymnasium with model trains for sale.  National award-winning layouts will be operating throughout the weekend and ALL MAJOR SCALES of model trains will be represented.  In addition to seeing large train layouts, the show offers the opportunity to purchase hard-to-find model trains from dealers from across the country; including everything from wooden Thomas trains to large indoor/outdoor G scale trains and railroad memorabilia.  Door prizes will be awarded every hour. 

 

Attendees might catch a glimpse of long model trains consisting of a hundred coal cars, model trains with working horns and lights, and model steam locomotives with whistles and steam.  Kids will have the chance to get up close and personal with a large “Garden Railroad” featuring multiple trains running on the gymnasium floor.
