Rail-A-Rama at Charlestowne Mall in St Charles

Janurary 26th and 27th, 2013

Charlestown Mall Show sponsored by Venture Crew 9911 (we’ve done this over 10 years), hours 7:30-10 Sat, 10-6 Sun. Again this year the Crew set up a modular HO layout at Charlestowne Mall for the annual Railrama train show, we’ve done this over 10 years. The hours for the show are 7:30-10 Sat, 10-6 Sun. This two day event is sponsored by Venture Crew 9911 which is a model train group also.
We set up our layout on Saturday morning before the Mall opened and had the display running during mall hours until Sunday evening. In 2003 our layout was just under 2 scale miles in length (1.995 miles).
This show brings in a lot of extra traffic to the mall just to see the train layouts and displays. There were about eight other train layouts on display for this show.
