  • PEORIA TRAIN FAIR THIS SUNDAY

    • Share:
    November 13, 2018
    The Peoria Train Fair pulls in to the Illinois Central College East Peoria campus on schedule, this Sunday, November 18th. The fair runs from 10AM to 3PM and is sponsored by the Illinois Valley Model Railroad Club in Peoria and Pekin’s River City Model Railroad Club. Admission is just $3 for adults. Kids, 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Refreshments will be available.
     
    The operating layouts return to the Train Fair this year courtesy of the River City Model Railroad Club, giving attendees an idea of what is possible in model railroading. “Run a Train” returns as kids can take turns as engineers and run selected trains on a small layout.
     
    DVDs, videos, books, and photos, as well as many model railroad parts and supplies will be available. Tables will also highlight new and used items from most scales including Lionel, G, O, HO, N and Z. Real railroad memorabilia will be available including clothing (hats, shirts, patches, and pins).  
     
    There will be something for everybody. It’s a great time to see the latest products and talk to those who can answer attendee’s questions.
     
    All proceeds from the fair support the Illinois Valley Model Railroad Club in Peoria and River City Model Railroad Club in Pekin and their efforts to highlight and promote the hobby of model railroading to all.
