Annual event will return to 18 locations March 9 and 10

The 12th Annual Delavan Train Show will ride the rails into downtown Delavan March 9 and 10. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday that weekend.

Featuring more than 40 model train layouts spread throughout downtown Delavan in 18 locations with interactive fun for all ages.

Begin the tour of the more than 40 train exhibits, many with active operating layouts, at the American Legion Hall, 111 S. 2nd St. Visitors can get their “tickets” punched at each of the 18 locations throughout downtown for a chance to win prizes. The tickets are available at each of the locations.

Stroll through downtown as each location is within walking distance, or hop on the trolley to get around in style. The trackless train continues to take children on rides through Tower Park. New this year will be exhibits honoring Delavan’s Circus history.

Each exhibitor’s goal is to entertain visitors of all ages and have placed a priority of creating fun, family friendly layouts. While some layouts have seek-and-find activities, others have buttons that operate accessories on the layout. Some layouts even give visitors a chance to be the train engineer.

The Delavan Train Show continues to grow every year, with last year attracting more than 6,000 visitors. With free admission, free parking, food and beverages, and raffle prizes, the show is provides good, old-fashioned family fun.
