GROWING CROWDS FORCE OZARKS MODEL RAILROAD ASSOCIATION MOVES TRAIN SHOW
TO FAIRGROUNDS EPLEX IN SPRINGFIELD, MO - SEPTEMBER 7
Growing attendance has caused the Ozark Model Railroad Association to move its annual Fall Train Show to the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds ePlex 9am to 3pm, Saturday, September 7.
Ever since the first train show in 1978 set an attendance record the number of people, including families, has grown steadily. The spring 2019 show closed in on 1,800 attendees creating the need to find a larger venue with lots of free parking.
The ePlex’s east hall with 32,500 square feet plus a huge parking lot was the answer. Now, in addition to the usual dozen or more operating railroads the OMRA has added two new, large, railroads never before seen in this area.
