OKLAHOMA CITY—Trains have always been a part of American history and now that piece of the country’s past and present is sending thousands to the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.
Ed Birch, Oklahoma City Train Show director, said, “There is a fascination that sticks with you and it doesn’t go away.”
For many, that fascination is put on display at the Oklahoma City Train Show, which just happens to be one of the largest of its kind in the country.
Trains of all sizes are able to capture eyes of all ages at this unique event.
Birch said, “Then when the trains start running, it’s kind of like putting all of the acts of a play together and the trains are the actors coming in and out of the scene.”
Many of the trains are small and crafted by hand, while others are actually big enough to ride.
Artwork is also on display.
The Oklahoma City Train Show is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Oklahoma State Travel and Transportation Building.
Admission is $10 for adults and children 12-years-old and under are free.
