The 39th Annual Model Railroad Show at the Pacific Science Center is almost here again! It runs from January 19th to 21st, 2013. Read all about our fun time at the show last year.
We can’t wait to go again next weekend! Our son had an absolutely wonderful time last year, and so did all of us adults who came along with him. Combine the model railroad show with a trip on the Seattle Monorail (and perhaps the Link Light Rail or the South Lake Union Streetcar) for a train-filled day.
A train ride also gives you a great way to entice them away from the show. We needed that, because the Little Engineer would have never left by choice!
From the model railroad show announcement on the Pacific Science Center’s website:
A Northwest family tradition, the Annual Model Railroad Show, now in its 39th year, is one of our most popular programs.
Explore dozens of model railroad displays and layouts.
Enjoy hands-on activities and crafts for people of all ages.
Discover the history of Pacific Northwest Railway museums.
Take a ride on the Iron Horse Railway kid-sized train.
Entry to this program is included with the price of general admission – free for Pacific Science Center members.
Produced in cooperation with the National Model Railroad Association, Pacific Northwest Region, 4th Division.
