23rd Annual Model Train show chugs into Asheville

Feb 28, 2013 (The McDowell News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Friday and Saturday, model railroad enthusiasts will again gather together in Fletcher for the 23rd Annual Model Train Show. And a downtown Marion business will again be represented at this year's event.


The train show, sponsored by the WNC Model Railroaders, will be held at the Western North Carolina Ag Center in Fletcher. The event will be held Friday from noon to 7 p.m. It will continue on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission will be $5 for adults. Children younger than 12 will be admitted free with an adult.

Based in Asheville, the WNC Model Railroaders is a non-profit club devoted to the hobby of model railroading and train-related interests. Club members come from throughout western North Carolina. The club has held the annual train show at different places in the Asheville area. Three years ago, the event was first held at the Ag Center which meant plenty of free parking for attendees and vendors alike.

The Train Shop, located at 93 S. Main St. in Marion, will again attend this year's show. The model train shop is owned and operated by Dan Tuttle. He will have four tables at the event.

The show will feature seven working model railroad layouts in a wide variety of scales. The detailed layouts include numerous trains, towns, mountains, tunnels and bridges. Model railroad enthusiasts and collectors will be there to demonstrate their equipment and answer questions about how to get started in the hobby.

Dealers from throughout the Southeast will attend the event with a wide assortment of model locomotives, rolling stock, buildings and scenery for layouts. More than 185 vendor tables will be set up at the event. Dealers will sell books, posters and videos about trains. Some of these will feature the trains and railroad landmarks of western North Carolina and McDowell County. You should find books, videos and old photographs of Andrews Geyser, the tunnels and loops at Altapass and the Marion and Old Fort depots. Dealers will also have engineer caps, whistles and toys for the youngsters.

The event will have activities for young children and a snack bar with food and drinks. To get to the Ag Center, take Interstate 40 west to Interstate 26. You will get off I-26 at Exit 40 and follow the signs. Enter at Gate No. 5 for free parking.
