The Peoria Train Fair pulls in at the Illinois Central College campus on schedule, this Sunday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Train Fair is sponsored by the Illinois Valley Model Railroad Club in Peoria and Pekin's River City Model Railroad Club.

This Sunday's fair will feature several operating model railroad layouts, swap meet tables, videos and more. Admission is just $3 for adults. Kids, 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Refreshments will be available.

DVDs, videos, books, and photos, as well as many model railroad parts and supplies will be available. Tables will also highlight new and used Lionel, O, HO, N and Z items. Real railroad memorabilia will be available including clothing (hats, shirts, patches, and pins).

Whether you're adding to an existing design or looking for a child's first train layout, everything will be at the Peoria Train Fair.

All proceeds from the fair support the Illinois Valley Model Railroad Club in Peoria and River City Model Railroad Club in Pekin and their efforts to highlight and promote the hobby of model railroading.
