Hey kids. Below are photos taken at Trainfest. You can see lots of kids having fun looking at huge model railroads. Some have tiny trains (we call them Z Scale) and they go up in size to the kind that run outdoors usually in gardens (those are called G Scale). All have different scenes. There is even real smoke coming out of some of the engines. How cool…
