Train show is this weekend at Greenbo Lake

ARGILLITE, Ky. — For one weekend each spring, Greenbo Lake State Resort Park turns into a veritable Mecca.

The annual Tri-State Model Railroad Show, sponsored by the Collis P. Huntington Railroad Historical Society, offers dozens of vendors selling railroad memorabilia and model train collectibles, miniature train rides for children and several working model train layouts.

“We have a 10’x 20’ circus train layout, we have a 16 foot x 24 foot Lionel O-gauge layout, an 8 foot x 40 foot HO gauge layout and a 12 foot x 16 foot N gauge layout,” organizer Dale Smith said.

There will also be information about area train trips. In addition to the annual New River train excursion, representatives of both the Hocking Valley Scenic Train and the Whitewater Railroad in Carrsville, Ind., will be on hand to showcase their excursions.

The train show is 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday at the Jesse Stuart Lodge.
