EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A local club is hosting an event to get
community members on the right track. Train or shine, the West Wisconsin
Railroad Club hosts their annual train show to demonstrate that model trains
are more than just a hobby or for train fanatics alone. Organizers say that the
best part about having a model train is that there is no “training” needed.

Club membership secretary, Mike Zaborowski, says the event is a fun and
educational way to learn more about a train’s mechanics, “Model
railroading is a great hobby. It’s for all ages, it’s for all skill levels,
it’s for all budgets, it’s for all rooms within the house or whatever you happen
to have.”

Zaborowski says they hope to raise around $1,000 through the event to put
back into the organization’s community outreach program.
