The Dubois County Museum welcomes the public to their third annual Model Train Show and Swap Meet on Saturday, October 20, from 10:00-3:00pm, at the museum at 2704 N. Newton Street in Jasper. About thirty vendors will be on hand to buy or sell different types and sizes of train cars, sets, toys and accessories. There will be several model train layouts displayed and running. Included in the train sets will be the museum’s Train Room that is undergoing some renovation.

Also, back by popular demand, will be a display of a train, its scenery, and train buildings made entirely of Legos. The train set is owned by Donnie and Lori Richardson. They will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have on the train set. At the Train Show free parking will be available. Concessions will be sold consisting of hot dogs, chips, and drinks.
