Albany - - Train enthusiasts are showing the fruits of their labor at an annual event this weekend.

The Flint River Model Railroad Club is holding its annual fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus.

They're selling trains of all kinds. Designers are showing off their exhibits - some of them replicate an actual city with a train and railroad tracks. The children love it, but club members say they get just as much out of it. 

"Well it's big boys playing with good toys. We got all sizes from tee tee, which is less than an inch tall up to standard gauge, which is six inches tall and one of our members has a 12 inch rail that you can ride," says Jimmy Swann.

You can also check out the exhibit Sunday as well from 11 AM until 4 PM.
