Chug On Down to the 4th Annual Elkader Model Train Show and Swap Meet

The 4th Annual Elkader Model Train Show and Swap Meet is chugging into Elkader, IA on Sunday, August 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Johnson’s Reception Hall.

Come to Elkader, which is in beautiful, scenic Clayton County, for a day that will be filled with many different types of train displays of different scales for all to enjoy. There will also be free parking and a lunch stand to accommodate all attendees.

Door prizes will also be available! There will also be a special kids drawing for ages 12 and under at 3 p.m. for a HO gauge train set. You do not need to be present to win.

All proceeds will go to the Elkader Depot Fund which will go towards the building of a depot and museum to showcase the history of the Milwaukee Road that used to run through Elkader, IA and Clayton County.

Head to the Elkader Model Train Show and Swap Meet to learn about trains and history of the railroad. This is a good time for the whole family!

Table reservations can be made by calling Larry Lerch at 563-245-3345 or 563-880-2066. After June 25, table reservations are $25.00 each. Be sure to like Elkader Depot Project on Facebook for more information about the train show as well as the Elkader Depot Project.

Come out to this family friendly fun event before it chugs away until next year!
