The Yaquina Pacific Railroad Historical Society (YPRHS) will host a holiday model train show on two weekends in December. The show will include HO scale, N scale, and Z scale model trains. A 1996 LEGO train will also be featured.
The show’s hours vary to give people flexibility in scheduling holiday activities. It will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays, Dec.14 and 21; from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, Dec. 15 and 22; and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays, Dec. 16 and 23. It will be held in the Toledo Depot building, located across the street from the YPRHS’s museum and the Toledo Post Office. The depot is also down the hill from the AWPPW Local 13 Union Hall.
A selection of model train cars and accessories will be available for purchase. Admission to the show is free, but donations are appreciated.
YPRHS is dedicated to educating the public on the historical and present impact of economic development of the railroad, its people, and its machinery in Lincoln County through preservation, interpretation and restoration. It operates the Yaquina Pacific Railroad Museum, sells related books and has an extensive library about railroads.
