The trains are coming, the trains are coming!
And not only that, but the ‘Icats’ are coming too!
The Museum at Campbell River is hosting the annual Tracks and Trains Show on Saturday, Jan. 24 (noon to 5 p.m.) and Sunday, Jan. 25 (noon to 4 p.m.).
Thousands of people have seen this show over the years and it never fails to impress.
Operating HO Scale trains and Garden Scale trains from the North Island Model Railroaders will be on display, and incredible arrangements of equipment, scenery and miniature buildings will all be available for ‘looking and learning.’
“We encourage anyone with an interest in model trains to come out and ask questions,” says member Bill Van Bergen.
“We love to share our knowledge with the community.”
In addition, the ‘Icats’ (Island Construction and Trucking Show) will be operating its radio controlled equipment.
“The excavators and front end loaders are powered with full hydraulics, with pumps and cylinders, and use batteries to power the pump motors,” says Icats member Rob Roy.
“We will be showing our hopper setup and rock separator, so we should be able to fill the tables with lots of action!”
Plus, the electric Lego Train will be back.
There is something for everyone from children to seniors.
The cost for this event is $7 per person or $20 for the whole family.
Kids under six are free.
