Locomotion Weekend, sponsored by Isaly's, features dozens of model train layouts, rail-related exhibits, and hands-on activities for train enthusiasts of all ages!
Bring your own model trains for a free check-up at the "Loco Doctor" table, which will be staffed by members of the Train Collectors Association-Fort Pitt Division and columnist Joe Mania of Classic Toy Trains magazine. The check-up includes basic repairs, routine cleaning, and oiling.
Visit demonstration tables and activities provided by the Duquesne Incline, Pennsylvania Trolley Museum, and Scenic Express, and more. Enjoy operating train layouts, provided by rail-related organizations including the Keystone Division of the National Model Railroad Association, the Fort Pitt Hi-Railers, the South Hills Model Railroad Club, and the Train Collectors Association's Kids Club (geared for little engineers!).
You'll also have a chance to explore the Miniature Railroad & Village® and see this year's newest additions—a replica of the original scoreboard and flagpole at Forbes Field, the barn at Manchester-Farms, and hundreds of miniature lights at Luna Park.
Locomotion Weekend activities are free with general admission to the Science Center.
