How do they do that?!
Want to get started in model railroading? Hone your modeling skills? At Trainfest you can watch the experts or take part in a clinic. Most are for adults but some are for only kids too.
Trainfest offers a variety of clinics and demonstrations on-site during the show.
To get a glimpse of the type and quality of clinics and demos, check out an issue or two of our Trainfest EXPRESS newsletter. There are some great “How-to” features from our clinic/demo presenters.
