Festival of Trains Having A Successful Second Week - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Festival of Trains Having A Successful Second Week

Posted: Updated:

It is week two of the Festival of Trains in Traverse City, and kids of all ages are coming out to take a look.

The History Center is filled with model trains and is real, interactive fun.

It also helps the Center in a big way, bringing in an average of about 9,000 people each year and raising between $30,000 and $40,000.

And it is not just the visitors that have fun with the exhibit, those who run the Festival of Trains really enjoy it, as well.

Bill Kirschke is a train conductor and says,

     "I think trains are cool.  We just love running trains, all of us do, and we love just putting stuff together and having a great time."

The Festival of Trains will be at the History Center until January 1st.
