Historically, the exhibit has drawn up to 5,000 Georgia model train enthusiasts in a single week.

This year’s exhibit will run daily from November 23rd – December 1st with the exception of Thanksgiving Day.

The exhibit is a kickoff of the holiday season for the Robins Air Force Base community and provides a welcome holiday activity that isn’t centered around shopping.
