NOV. 12, 2022

We head off to TRAINFEST

Join the 20th Century Railroad Club on a trip to Trainfest on Saturday November 12 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Good Old Fashioned Family Fun. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of miniature railroading at the Trainfest! The train show is designed for children of all ages; for modelers, collectors and enthusiasts; for families in search of good old-fashioned fun; and for the simply curious. The show features hundreds of booths of train manufacturers, train retailers, as well as huge operating exhibits, activities for kids, free seminars and educational opportunities, and much more.

After the Trainfest spend time at Historic Third Ward in Milwaukee before your return. Leave at 8:25am from Union Station on the Hiawatha Return at 5:45 to Chicago.

See all the details here.
