Trainfest is America’s largest operating model railroad show with up to 200,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space and has featured up to 70 operating model railroads. It is a great event for families and hobby enthusiasts alike, and Kalmbach is excited to bring this event back to the Milwaukee area after a two-year hiatus.
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.
There’s plenty at Trainfest to see and do. You’ll see the best that the model railroad hobby has to offer; beautifully designed and built model train layouts in operation, scale models of trains, cars and buildings, and new products. There are free workshops and seminars where you can learn things like how to build a model railroad of your own, how to use digital command control, or how to make your trains and layout look ultra-realistic. Trainfest is designed to promote model trains to even the youngest enthusiast.
