Model train show is coming soon

November 11, 2006

Albany -- The Flint River Model Railroad Club of Albany says they're on track for their annual train show and sale, and they're inviting the public to come out. Saturday was the first open house at club headquarters on N. Washington Street downtown.

The club meets once a month to assemble train kits, tracks, and foam and rubber scenery. Kits can range in cost from $4 to thousands of dollars.

Members say the club is a fun way to promote the historical and modeling side of trains.

"It's just a real pleasant hobby, keeps me out of trouble. Doesn't keep me from spending money, but it keeps me out of trouble," said Jimmie Swann.

The train show is scheduled for January 27th and 28th at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Gillionville Road.
