Free-Mo group displays at Trains N Treasures
The No. 1 Northern Division's Free-Mo Group has set up a display at Trains N Treasures (formerly known as the Holiday Express Ride-On Train). Their display will remain at Trains N Treasures until the first weekend April, when it will be set up at the WMRC's annual spring open house.
The Free-Mo Group has many members who both belong to the WMRC and the NMRA. Ian Plett, who is a dual member, is the current president of the Free-Mo Group. He accepted an invitation to set up at Trains N Treasures from operators Maurice and Susan Dorge.
The Dorges, who also run the Manitoba Mega Train Show, set up the Holiday Express in December 2015 in the former Safeway building at 3059 Ness Avenue. It featured the popular ride-on train from the Mega Train Show in a Christmas setting. After the holidays, they decided to keep it running and change the name.
Trains N Treasures offers secure rental space for artisans, crafters, home based businesses, antiques and vintage items. If a person wants to see or purchase an item from within a cabinet, the staff will open the cabinet and complete the sale. Twice a month a cheque or an electronic money transfer will be sent to vendors.
Trains N Treasures is open Saturday from 10:00AM to 8:00PM, and on Sunday from 10:00AM to 6:00 PM. For more information about Trains N Treasures, go to: http://www.vectorgardentrains.ca/trains-n-treasures/
