Don’t have that kind of money to spend? That’s OK, too, he said. People can come to learn about the trains and their history.
They can also stop by to see the trains in motion.
There will be a couple of 34-foot-long displays with trains chugging through mountain scenery.
He encourages parents to bring their children. He’s sure the kids will be captivated by the scene.
Moree is so intent on inspiring the next generation of train collectors that he allows young kids to come to the show for free and older kids for a dollar. That’s rare at train shows, he said.
He wants to spark a passion in them. Playing with trains is so much better than sitting at a computer, he said.
“They really give kids something to do,” he said.
