Visit Model Railroads Across Austin!
After you check out the train show, visit one of many model railroads across the Austin area. These layouts are mostly located in private homes, and come in all shapes, sizes and scales! Some are open Saturday only, some Sunday only, and some both days. A handout with maps and detailed directions is available at the registration table at the show. Please remember you are visitors in other peoples' homes, and act accordingly.
