Here are the details. As a parent, it is getting harder to find things to do with the kids. If I hear, "I'm bored" one more time. Well, there is a model train exhibit that is happening in Schenectady at the MiSci museum.

According to the MiSci website, you can head over to the museum to check out the miSci Model Train Show. There is an enormous model train display that measures nineteen by twenty-seven feet. It shows scenes of how trains transformed transportation and were an integral part of the country's growth. The exhibition is called Plasticville and features an amusement park and five concurrently running tracks. There are freight yards too. There is a loading area that has vintage equipment that loads logs onto the trains.

There are also some familiar train sets from the 1930s and 1950s from the Lionel train company. There are antiques of old ALCO steam engines, a 19th century model of a steamboat from the Hudson River, and a 1920s model of the USS Constitution.
