Remembrance Day Weekend Activities

Activities

As the name might suggest, the Expo is all about model trains and miniature railways. There are booths set up with a variety of model trains, educational displays and sometimes even close-to-life-size model train cars.

Also within the event is a marketplace where folk can purchase model railway products, toy trains and accessories.

There are even some family-friendly activities available. Kids – or folk of any ages – can enjoy the Lego displays, mini train rides and a play area with model trains.
