Model railroad show Saturday

The Alexandria Model Railroad Association's 15th annual Model Train Show and Sale is set for this Saturday.

The event will take place Saturday, May 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Runestone Community Center, which is located on the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Admission is $3 per person. Kids younger than 10 are free with adult admission.

The Alexandria Model Railroad Association was formed in the early 1980s as the Alexandria Railroad Modelers, which was a fellowship of model railroad enthusiasts.

The group outgrew its space and in 2009, it moved back to Alexandria. The association now resides at 115 8th Avenue East. With the move came another new name - the Alexandria Model Railroad Association.
