Dear Gentle Readers,
Yesterday we went to the Youngstown Model Railway Association's 2015 Annual Model Train Open House in Austintown, OH, and it was fantastic!
If you have little ones, or if you just love trains like I do (and don't call me Sheldon), don't miss this show.
The hours of hard work and dedication to keeping the memory of our rich railroad history alive and chugging down the track is one of the goals of the Youngstown Model Railroad Association.
This annual show also runs Nov. 14 and 15 and Dec. 5 and 6, from noon until 6:00 and is the best train show in the area with two large floors of elaborately set-up moving train displays, complete with smoke and lights and a video-cam display were you can feel you are on that big yellow Union Pacific barreling down the track! There are snacks available on the lower level, a scavenger hunt, and even an occasional derailment.
Admission for children eleven and under with an adult is free, with a $4.00 per person donation for adults.
Impress your grandchildren! Take them to the train show.
The GPS address is 751 N. Four Mile Run Rd., Youngstown, OH 44515. They also have a great website: www.ymra.org
