Riding Train for Kids of All Ages

We are very pleased to announce the NMRA’s “Build a Memory” program will be presented at this show. The NMRA (National Model Railroad Association) created this program for kids and adults to help them find the love of trains.
There will be the same layout on display, in three different stages:
1. Complete
2. Being built – laying track and scenery
3. Just started

There are handouts available detailing a supply list and participating sponsor companies such as Lowe’s, Bachmann, Atlas, etc.
Kids and their parents will have the chance to learn from the experts, ask questions and participate in the project. It is entirely free and is a wonderful opportunity.

Free Door Prize Giveaways

Plus Much, Much More!
