WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– The Wilmington Railroad Museum hosts a Model Railroad Extravaganza this weekend. Miniature trains and landscapes fill an entire room of the museum. Guests can watch the model trains chug by, or even conduct these engines themselves. The museum promotes a remote control that allows children and adults to tell the train to go forward, back up, or just stay put.
Executive Director of the Wilmington Railroad Museum, Mark Koenig, says this is an event for all ages. He says children have the chance to engage with the trains, while adults have the opportunity to participate in the craft of model railroads. He also says this is a great way to share the heritage and history of railroads in our country.
