Titletown Train Show in Ashwaubenon

ASHWAUBENON – It was all aboard for fun at Shopko Hall in Ashwaubenon this weekend.

The 13th annual Titletown Train Show featured more than 15 operating train layouts which ranged from finger-sized to some that visitors could even ride on.

There were also vendors selling model railroad engines, cars and kits, along with railroad clothing and memorabilia.

“There’s a lot of aspects to the hobby that appeal to the kids. They start with Thomas the Tank Engine lot times, when they’re a teenager they’ll get out of it and be more interested in video games or whatever. As they get older, especially the retirees, they get back into it again for something to do, and they can build an empire in their basement,” said Todd Bushmaker.

The event started Saturday and wrapped up Sunday.
