Come to Trainfest to see what top-notch layouts look like.

Not all trains at Trainfest are moving — these are the trains we call displays.

These models depict historical settings, fantasy railroads or even the future in still life. Displays can be fun to look at because some are so exact and so perfect to scale they help you understand what all goes into the hobby and how talented modelers really are.

Trainfest is the largest weekend event at Wisconsin State Fair Park’s Expo Center and Milwaukee’s largest fall festival.

A quick look around Trainfest will remind you that railroads have had a huge impact on American history.

Thanks to the historical societies for preserving the history of the railroads.

We truly appreciate the heritage they treasure.
