Model train enthusiasts display work at annual show

Sam Delauter’s handiwork isn’t finished just yet.

To the untrained eye glancing over his model train display at the Kanawha Valley Railroad Association’s show, the display looks complete.

“Anybody can go and have trains, but to really make it look realistic and to bring it all together, it’s a combination of scenery and the train cars,” Delauter, 32, of Hurricane, said.

Delauter’s project, and the work of many other train enthusiasts, is on display this weekend at the KVRA’s annual train show at the lodge in Coonskin Park. The show continues today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

At the show, model train enthusiasts get the chance to show displays they have built in the past year.
