Hundreds of vendors are showing their wares this weekend, covering everything from the newest model trains on the block to rarities almost a hundred years old; you might spot that final HO gauge boxcar you’ve always wanted. Classes and seminars are also offered in a variety of levels, whether you want to learn the basics of train layout or just polish your mad scale-model skills. And, of course, there are dozens of elaborate train layouts to peruse, as well as numerous kid-friendly activities to keep the little conductors happy.
Tickets for the show are $8 for ages twelve and up; admission is free for kids under twelve, Scouts in uniform and military personnel with ID. The miniature railroad fun, which started yesterday, runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the Denver Merchandise Mart, 451 East 58th Avenue.
