“ChooChoo. Attention passengers, next stop Campbell River!”

It’s that time of year again – the North Island Model Railroaders annual show at the Museum at Campbell River is back.

On Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 23-24, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. (12 – 4 p.m. on Sunday), the community is invited to come see the excitement of model trains.  The show is amazing – everyone that attends walks away impressed and this year’s show will prove to be as interesting as ever.

There is something for the whole family.  Incredible displays of model railroad equipment, scenery and miniature buildings will all be available for looking and learning.

The electric Lego train will be back.  And for the third year in a row, a wonderful display and demonstration of fully functioning radio-controlled miniature heavy equipment will be on site.  Watch them do real work with real hydraulics.

Questions are always encouraged as many Railroader members are eager to introduce you to the fun-filled world of model railroads.

The cost is $8 per person or $20 for the whole family.  Kids under six are free.

Call the Museum at Campbell River at 287-3103 for more information. Discover for yourself why this fascinating hobby is popular all around the world.
