Visit Website

The Peoria Train Fair returns to the Illinois Central College East Peoria campus on Sunday, November 19. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is sponsored by Pekin’s River City Model Railroad Club. Admission is just $3 for adults. Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Refreshments will be available. Whether you are a model railroad enthusiast, train buff, or just someone who is looking for unique holiday gifts, there will be something for everybody. It’s a great time to see the latest products and talk to those who can answer your questions. The operating layouts return to the Train Fair this year courtesy of the River City Model Railroad Club, giving fairgoers an idea of what is possible in model railroading. “Run a Train” will be back as kids can take turns as engineers and run a train on a small layout. DVDs, videos, books, and photos, as well as many model railroad parts and supplies will be available. Tables will also highlight new and used items from most scales including Lionel, G, O, HO, N and Z. Real railroad memorabilia will be available including clothing (hats, shirts, patches, and pins). All proceeds from the fair support the River City Model Railroad Club in Pekin and the club’s efforts to highlight and promote the model railroading hobby.
