Model trains exhibited among planes at the Museum of Aviation in Warner-Robins

The Middle Georgia Model Railroad Club showcased large model train displays at the Museum of Aviation
From her grandfather's shoulders, Kyla Bellamy watched with wide eyes as locomotives traveled 10 miles of tracks that winded through country and city, passing through pastures, circuses and drive-in movies.

"This little girl loves trains," Frank Bellamy said of his granddaughter, who is 2. "We got her two trains at the house. They're toy trains. She's just fascinated with them. They'll go off the tracks, and she'll put them back on."

The pair visited the Century of Flight building at the Museum of Aviation on Monday morning, where the Middle Georgia Model Railroad Club is showcasing some of its club members' elaborate models this week. The exhibit is free and open to the public. It is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through Nov. 29 but will close for Thanksgiving.

Bellamy, of Perry, said he'd never been to the event and thought his granddaughter, who lives in Statesboro, would enjoy it.

"I think it's neat," he said of the annual exhibit. "It's for kids, but it's still neat."
