Trainfest 2015 featuring Chicago & North Western Ry. tribute

Published: January 16, 2015
Trainfest 2015 is on schedule to arrive in Milwaukee Nov. 14-15. The show will occupy the two largest buildings at Wisconsin State Fair Park for a combined 230,000 square feet of exhibit space.

Trainfest will host a special feature presentation, “Celebrating the Chicago & North Western,” with historical displays, special manufacturer’s products, artist’s displays, presentations by clinicians, human-interest stories, and several layouts with CNW equipment. Trainfest estimates 14 of its 56 clinics during the weekend will be dedicated to CNW topics.

Railfans and anyone who worked for CNW are encouraged to submit stories and photographs about the railroad for display at the event.

Trainfest is currently providing applications for the show to vendors, clubs, groups and individuals with a display or operating layout. Of special interest to show coordinators are new and interesting layouts of all sizes as well as cottage manufacturers and vendors with appealing products for show attendees of all ages. Any CNW-themed items will be of special interest.

Specially priced two-day tickets will become available on July 1, along with a schedule of events, at www.trainfest.com.
