Christmas-themed model trains on display in Warren

The Riverside Railroad Club's Christmas open house showcases different model trains.

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Several families came out to see model trains on display in Warren on Saturday.

The Riverside Railroad Club held an open house on Saturday, complete with different train layouts.

The event was free for children under 12, and raffle tickets were given away as prizes.

Darrin Warren, president of the club, says he hopes this excites the next generation.

“They see the trains on our Christmas [open house], mostly everything we have set up is with a Christmas theme. So we hope the kids get excited and we hope some younger generations get into model trains, which is kind of fading away.”

The Riverside Railroad Club holds four open houses each year. The Christmas open house will be on display Sunday as well, from 1-5 p.m. at the Warren SCOPE Center.
