The event featured more than double the number of model trains from last year and lots of activities for kids, including rides on a miniature coal train.

The growth of our community has been shaped by the railroads so this is a perfect way to celebrate and honor our railroad history and our love of the iron horse. -Michelle Williams, Executive Director for the Billings Depot.
