Tiny trains draw hundreds of tri-state visitors

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Tiny trains on display and for sale in Dubuque this weekend drew hundreds of visitors. The Heartland Rails Model Railroad Club held it's 24th annual show at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds.

More than 800 collectors and enthusiasts checked out just about everything train related you could think of. The club's president says the event always brings a lot of families.

"My dad was a collector, and he got me interested in it, and then of course, my son is interested, one of my sons, so it's kind of a family thing. It's not inexpensive entertainment by any means, but it's a lot of fun," Gary Weiner said.

More than 40 vendors came from four states to this year's show.
