Eau Claire (WEST WISCONSIN RAILROAD CLUB)- If you love trains, then we have the perfect event for you that you won’t want to miss.
The West Wisconsin Railroad Club will be hosting the 17th Annual Train Show at the YMCA Indoor Sports Center in Eau Claire on Craig Road. The train show is a great family event where kids will love to watch the trains. The event will open if there is rain or shine, because it will be indoors. There will be dozens of model railroad displays, vendors, and memorabilia. There will even be door prizes for kids and adults.
This will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday, October 14 from 10 am – 4 pm. Tickets for adults will be $6.00, for students 6-16 $3.00, and children 5 and under get in for free.
They are a not-for-profit club dedicated to the preservation of the railroad history of the Chippewa Valley. In addition to identifying the geographical area where their members live, their name also is a historical reference to the “West Wisconsin Railway” which came into existence in 1863. It ran from Tomah to Hudson, WI via Eau Claire. They participate in as many as 6 railroad shows each year. They build models and layouts, travel to train shows, operate train layouts proto typically, watch and photograph trains, and study railroad history.
