The Kanawha Valley Railroad Association holds their annual show this weekend at The Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center. This will be their second show at the Coliseum, but since last year’s show was greeted by seven inches of snow the night before, for many people this will be the first chance to see a model train show at this great space.

Officially, the 17th annual KVRA Model Train and Craft Show happens March 11 and 12, and it should be a great time for fans of model railroading, and for people and kids who just love miniatures.

Several displays with working train layouts will be on display and there will be dozens of vendors selling model railroading supplies, toys, clothing and related cool train stuff.

Show hours will be 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and 10 AM until 4 PM on Sunday. Admission each day will be $5, with children 12 and younger admitted free.

For more information about the model train and craft show, contact Joe Horter at 304-539-6721 or jhorter@gmail, Richard Boyd at 615-319-9654 or email or visit their Facebook Page or visit their website.

PopCult last attended the KVRA Model Train and Craft Show three years ago when it was in Jefferson. Here’s a quick video I made at the time…
