Dr. Edward Olson is a hobbyist and organizer of the event.  He joined me on WJON.  Olson says the event is for people interested in trains, the history, the hobby and for families.  A children's railway play area which includes a wooden train layout is available.  Olson says children really enjoy this spot and this early love of trains if what led to his passion for model trains as an adult.  He says many of the hobbyists love to talk about their displays and the detail that went into what they've created.

Tickets for the event are $6.00 for adults with kids 10 and under for free.  If you'd like to learn more about the Granite city Train Show it is available below.
