Model railroaders meet for annual showcase

NANAIMO – There will be no shortage of trains running at Beban Park for the model railroad show.

Trains are running again in Nanaimo.

There has been much talk throughout the past few years on the future of trains running on Vancouver Island and the operation of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway. On Sunday (April 24), there will be no shortage of trains running at the Beban Park social centre as the local chapter of the National Model Railroad Association host its 32nd annual model railroad show.

The show is open to the public. There will be operating layouts in various scales, swap-and-shop tables, and information tables about the hobby for beginners.

The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. with a minimal admission charge at the door.
