November 19, 20, 25, 26. The Great Falls Model Railroad Club
ExTRAINaganza at 144 Mill St., Auburn across from Barker Mill Apartments, will be fun for the whole family. Model trains in various scales will be running under decorated Christmas trees and operating throughout the two-story, handicapped accessible building on temporary Christmas layouts and extensive permanent layouts, including Thomas the Tank Engine. There is a Brio layout at a young child’s height and a play area with age-appropriate trains for young children near the craft tables where parents can sit and watch their children while enjoying light snacks.
Railroad sets and train cars, hats and T-shirts, and other model railroad items will be for sale.
Train Time videos will be shown all day and can also be purchased.
