Trail Center hosts model train exhibit through December

CASPER, Wyo. – The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is hosting its annual model railroad exhibit throughout the month of December.

The exhibit is presented and operated by the Casper-based Central Wyoming Model Railroad Association. Organized in 1987, the association provides model railroading educational and recreational opportunities.

The display will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the following days:

  • Dec. 2-4
  • Dec. 9-11
  • Dec. 15-18
  • Dec. 22-24

This year’s holiday railroad exhibit, “Passenger Trains from the Past,” offers something for every age. Guests are invited to view and operate a variety of model trains. Club members from the railroad association will be on-hand to assist and educate train enthusiasts.

“This is truly a hands-on operation where you will have the opportunity to touch and operate the trains,” says club member Homer Whitlock.

The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is open 7 days a week from 9 am to 4:30 pm MST.
