It’s “All aboard!” for the Peoria Train Fair coming to the Illinois Central College campus, Sunday, November 20th. The Fair runs from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM and is sponsored by the Illinois Valley Model Railroad Club in Peoria and Pekin’s River City Model Railroad Club.
The clubs’ fundraiser will feature model railroads, swap meet tables, videos and more. Admission is just $3 for adults. Kids, 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Refreshments will be available.
“Whether you are a model railroad enthusiast, train buff, or just someone who is looking for unique Christmas gifts, there will be something for everybody” according to event organizer, Ron Brown. “We’re excited about this great event!”
Attendees will find DVDs, videos, books, and photos, as well as many model railroad parts and supplies. Tables will highlight new and used Lionel, O, HO, N and Z items. Real railroad memorabilia will be available including clothing (hats, shirts, patches, and pins). It’s all there whether you’re adding to an existing design or looking for a child’s first train layout.
