Celebrate the Rich History


Trainfest proudly honors the contribution railroads have made to history. The Celebrate-a-Railroad program turns the spotlight on one railroad by offering special issue collectibles and by creating an original high-quality historical exhibit with plenty of photos. 

Trainfest 2017


Creators combed through acres of archives while designing this year’s Soo Line Display. You’ll find all sorts of trivia including tidbits such as: “Several Soo cars were featured in the 1962 movie version of Ernest Hemingway’s Adventures of a Young Man.”

All three Celebrate-a-Railroad Exhibits Available for Rent

Each consists of 32 panels (72” H x 36” W) printed on foam core with Velcro mounting tabs on the back. The exhibit is self-contained in that text appears on the panels themselves. Rental is $250 per 10-week period. Any group requesting the exhibit is also responsible for covering shipping both to and from Milwaukee and must have insurance. Materials to help promote the displays are available upon request. Email us at info@trainfest.com for more information.
