20th Annual Rails in the Rockies
This Presidents Weekend, ditch the crowded ski slopes and bring your model train buff, child, or kid at heart to Rails in the Rockies, Colorado’s premier model railroad show. Hosted by the Estes Valley Model Railroaders, this train show fills the Estate Park Events Center with the clickety-clack, blowing whistles, and hiss of brakes of model trains cruising around their tracks.
Featured in this 16,000-square foot space are more than 20 model train layouts and displays from 28 vendors. U.S. and British trains from all eras of rail travel are represented, each of which was built by a Colorado-model railroader. For kids, there are trains they can operate themselves, a scavenger hunt, and a massive Lego train model. For adults wanting to learn or improve on the craft, there are also live clinics on train modeling.
This year, Rails in the Rockies celebrates its 20th Anniversary, which means the energy and excitement surrounding the event is higher than ever. Do something different this Presidents Weekend and head to Estes Park for this unique and fun event that’s perfect for all ages.
