Annual Railroad Show at Ploughman's Park in Big Rock, IL

June 29th, 2013

Show hours are 10-4. There will be many steam (and probably diesel) engines, so bring your camera. These engines are about 1 ˝” scale, can weigh over 500 lbs, and can be a very expensive hobby for those in it, so this is a great time to see what machinists can do in their spare time for fun.
The address is Ploughman’s Park-Kenny’s Field, 48W508 Hinckley Rd, Big Rock IL 50611.

The directions to Prarie State Railroad Club are I 88 the Reagan west to the Sugar Grove exit Follow that south and it curves west and becomes RT 30 when it crosses RT 47. Keep going west into the town of Big Rock and at the far edge of town there is Lincoln Street, If you get to a shell station go back to Lincoln Street, turn south 1 block across the tracks and turn right on Second Street go west till you reach Ploughman's Park on your right and thats the place.
