Remember the first time you ever laid eyes on an operating model railroad layout as a child? There’s still something magical about these miniature worlds, created in intricate, loving detail by dedicated hobbyists. Bring along the kids in your own life, or just come yourself to rediscover the delights of model railroading at the largest model train and railroad hobby show in Ulster County on Sunday, October 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Kingston. It will take place in the Andy Murphy Midtown Neighborhood Center (the old Armory building) at 467 Broadway, at the corner of Hoffman Street.
The Kingston Model Train and Railroad Hobby Show will offer 11,000 square feet of operating layouts, dealer and vendor tables, model train exhibits, modular layouts, a large-scale garden railroad train display and all sorts of Railroadiana. For the little ones, there will be a Kids’ Corner play area, plenty of Thomas the Tank Engine stuff and a toy train set raffle. Food and refreshments will be available. Admission costs $6 for adults, $1 for children under age 12. For more information, visit www.kingstontrainshow.com.
