2015 TRAIN FEST
On August 22 and 23, the Great Falls Model Railroad Club is hosting our annual Train Fest during the Auburn/Lewiston Balloon Festival.
All activities will be held at the railroad club, 144 Mill Street, Auburn. The club will be open on Saturday, August 22, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, August 23, from noon to 5 p.m. All of the club layouts will be in operation, and there will be special activities for children. The building will be decorated with pictures and models of hot air balloons to help create a festive atmosphere.
As they enter, children will write their names on small paper hot air balloons and push-pin them onto a painted backdrop scene. Younger children can play with the wooden Brio train set and toy trains on the play rug. In the G-Gauge room, they can operate Thomas the Tank Engine and watch the engine named Percy run on the recently installed trestle above Thomas.
Tickets can be purchased to play the Balloon Bag Toss and Round House Roulette games and to become a Guest Engineer on our HO layout.
Admission is $3; children under 12 admitted free.
