Trainfest Builders Launched in 2019

Check back soon for all the new announcements for Trainfest 2020!

Thanks to Wm. K. Walthers Inc., traditional train layouts received a brand new perspective when children ages 5-14 displayed their personal creative train layouts in the new “Trainfest Builders” Kids Layout Section at Trainfest 2019.

Trainfest is collaborating with a number of educators and clubs to ensure the program supports, promotes, and culminates the benefits of a STEAM education. (The grouping of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math academic disciplines to enable children to apply classroom knowledge successfully through analysis and problem solving.)

All children ages 5-14 are invited to participate. Three categories of exhibiting are offered: layouts of toy trains themed by the child; a display of running railroads that incorporates elements of model building; or creation of a Module to spec.
