Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's annual spring train show happens on April 1 & 2

The Winnipeg Model Railroad Club will he holding its annual spring train show and open house on April 1 & 2 at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. Hours are from 11AM to 4PM on both days.

This is the second biggest train show to be held this year in the entire province, and it's going to be jam packed with plenty of features and exhibits! The No.1 Northern Division's Free-Mo group, the Kildonan Short Lines, the Assiniboine Valley Railway and WinNtrak all will be displaying. There will also be the popular Lionel Giraffe Car portable layout, which is always a hit with the younger set.

As an extra added bonus, the club has made a limited run of some custom made buttons which they will be handing out to the kiddies! But it'll be first come, first serve! There will also be the club's annual model and photo contest displays, and the canteen will be selling hot dogs!

Admission is by donation. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Amant, who will also have a display at the show.
This is a sample of the artwork which will be used on the buttons the club will be handing out.
