Times are good for model railroad enthusiasts in Denver. An old friend returned last weekend, and a spring ritual at the Denver Mart is back today and Sunday.
RMTS Executive Director Jim Marski says the show has become a comprehensive introduction to the hobby while maintaining appeal for hardcore model railroaders. It started as a local swap meet in 1976.
“Our future requires us to create new hobbyists, most of whom are youngsters and families that haven’t had much exposure to the hobby,” he said. “Our show is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate all the aspects of the hobby and encourage their interest. It’s also a place where model railroaders of all levels can see the latest products and techniques and hone their skills.”
