Rails in the Rockies

February 18-19, 2017

Clanging bells, tooting whistles, and blaring horns will fill the Estes Park Events Complex as trains from the steam age to the present time roar along tracks of model railroad layouts at the annual "Rails in the Rockies" exhibit.

Organized by the Estes Valley Model Railroaders, these working exhibits include models of trains from many regions of the United States as well as selected models of British railroads, all of which have been crafted in detail by dedicated model railroaders from all over Colorado. Children will enjoy the "Kids Layout" where they can actually operate model trains themselves.

Exhibit hours for the show are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 per person, although children under 12 get in free with an adult.
