This is the America’s Largest Operating Model Railroad Show! Everywhere you look, there’s something train. Spend the day being mesmerized by spectacular miniature versions of railroads, running the trains, and learning how to build them. Get a taste of why model railroading is such a popular hobby.
The new section at Trainfest, an event drawing more than 20,000 visitors, will feature layouts built by children – from young modelers with a train and toys to older kids applying their STEAM learnings to model railroad building.
Trainfest is collaborating with a number of educators and clubs to ensure the program supports, promotes, and culminates the benefits of a STEAM education. (The grouping of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math academic disciplines to enable children to apply classroom knowledge successfully through analysis and problem solving.)
