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

July 5th, 2014

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.

Directions: take I 88 west to the Sugar Grove exit and follow it around till it becomes US 30 keep going west (about 3 miles) almost all the way through the town of Big Rock, turn left on Lincoln and right across the RR tracks turn right on 2nd, about 1 mile down the Plowmen's Park is on your right. I know that it is a busy weekend but I hope to see you there.
