Rails In The Rockies

All aboard! Here come the trains! Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16 the annual Rails in the Rockies Model Railroad Show will be in Estes Park. This event is provided by the Estes Valley Model Railroaders. The show will be at the Estes Park Event Center with ample free parking. The cost of the show is $10 for adults, children 12 and under are free with a $20 maximum for families.

The hobby of model railroading has many facets and this show highlights nearly all of them.

There will be running train yards, switching puzzles, wooden trains, HO and N scale, Lionel and American Flyer along with the popular LEGO layout. There will be photography, fabulous scenic landscapes, scratch built buildings, trestles, mines wagons and train cars, art work and painting, woodworking and sculpture. There will even be a display of all hand built model circus wagons. We have children built layouts and layouts made especially for little children.

The history of railroading is fascinating, especially in Colorado. This year we have museum and historical societies joining us. The Rocky Mountain Railroad Historical Society and the Forney Museum of Transportation in Denver.

Come enjoy the show! All aboard!
