From December 14-17, the Ashland Model Railroaders & Railfans club is set to bring a festive cheer to the Kingwood Center with their enchanting Christmas Model Train Display. This event, part of the Christmas at Kingwood, promises to be a delightful experience for all ages, requiring advance registration for all attendees, including members and children under 12.
A Festive Journey Through Model Railroading
Model railroading, a blend of creativity, technical prowess, and a love for locomotives, finds a special place during the holiday season. The Christmas Model Train Display by the Ashland Model Railroaders & Railfans club is a journey back in time, a throwback to nostalgic childhood Christmases with simple circular tracks as a centerpiece of holiday gatherings.
The holiday season invigorates the community spirit inherent in model railroading. Clubs like Ashland Model Railroaders & Railfans come together to showcase their members’ skills and artistry, creating more than just a display – a festive hub for enthusiasts to connect, share stories, and enjoy the season.
Starting a Festive Hobby: Model Railroading for Beginners
Christmas also marks an opportune moment for beginners to embark on their model railroading adventure. With manufacturers releasing holiday-themed starter sets, it’s easier than ever to start building a personal miniature rail empire. These sets, complete with tracks, locomotives, cars, and scenic elements, offer a gateway into a hobby that combines artistic expression with technical skill, wrapped in a festive bow. Locally, a great place to stock up on all things railroading is at HobbyTown at 2400 West Fourth Street in Ontario.
