Train fundraiser attracts hundreds

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  They're a long time tradition in many families. Trains have attracted hundreds of people to one Albany fundraiser this weekend.

Knights of Columbus members held a train expo for the public Saturday and Sunday. Venders from all over Georgia, Florida, and Alabama brought trains of all different sizes and models to show off.

Kids and adults looked at different models with a range in prices from $100 to thousands of dollars.

One organizer says it's a good way for kids to use their time wisely.

"It keeps kids out of trouble and you can put a kid in there with a train and he can play with it for hours, said Show Chairman Jimmy Swann."

Even though the event doesn't have as many venders this year, the turnout from the community was much larger than expected.
