This weekend, September 7th and 8th, train enthusiasts—from the littlest fans to the oldest history buffs and everyone in between—will transform the Kensington Town Hall into a model train spectacular.
The National Capital Trackers, a local club, will run “O” gauge electric trains on multiple layouts, with flourishes such as train whistles, steam, depots and bridges giving visitors lots to marvel at.
Called “All Aboard for Kensington,” the event in Kensington, Maryland, will also feature live music. Performers include The Dixie Land Express Band (Sept. 7, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), Sisters Uke & Friends from 2:30-4 p.m.and railroad songs and stories by Matthew Dodd (Sept. 8, 1-4 p.m.). There will also be activities for kids. Visit the website for the updated schedule as new events are being added- https://kensingtontrainshow.com
The family-friendly event is sponsored by the Ditto Group of Long & Foster Real Estate and the Town of Kensington. Proceeds benefit the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation (noyeslibraryfoundation.org) and the Kensington Historical Society (kensingtonhistory.org).
