All aboard for the Model Train Showcase!
Layouts from our friends at the Midwest Division of Train Collectors Association, Northwest Trainmasters, British Train Society, and the Illinois Railway Museum steam back into town Saturday, November 5, 9:30A-4P and Sunday, November 6, 1-4P.
As you create train crafts, enjoy refreshments, and enter for a chance to win door prizes, the hobbyists who build and maintain these captivating layouts will be on hand to discuss them. After a little rambling about railroads, view exhibits, memorabilia, and collections from the Milwaukee Road Historical Association and Chicago and North Western Historical Society.
For one day only, on November 5, learn about train and railroad crossing safety from Metra representatives, too!
Model Railroad Showcase is made possible by generous donations from America's Best Train, Toy & Hobby Shop in Itasca and 2Toots Restaurant in Itasca. Thank you!
Admission to Model Railroad Showcase is free and no registration is required. All ages welcome.
