Railfans Ready for the 41st Annual International Railfair Show in Roseville
Nov. 11-12, 2017
@the Grounds (prev. Placer County Fairgrounds)
Largest Local Model Railroad Show
Rocklin, CA - Nov. 1, 2017 - On Nov. 11-12 the 41st Annual International Railfair (IRF) will arrive @the Grounds in Roseville for the area's largest locally produced model railroad show. Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to be teaming up with IRF to bring this incredible two-day event back to the recently renovated fairgrounds.
Dick Witzens, who serves as the IRF Secretary, explained that all the of the shows have been @the Grounds which was formerly known as the Placer County Fairgrounds. "Without the Placer County Fairgrounds there would have been no IRF as they have been the best overall choice for us in price, location and size," Witzens commented. "We are really looking forward this year, especially to see the facility renovations @the Grounds."
For the past 40 years this show has not only been a huge success but continues to grow thanks to the combined effort of these four model railroad organizations: Sacramento Modular Railroaders, Roseville Roundhouse Model Railroad Club, European Train Enthusiasts and the Sierra Division of the National Model Railroad Association. Together they work throughout the year planning and researching to ensure the show gets better each year and this year promises to the be the best yet!
The IRF serves as the main fundraiser for the four area model railroad clubs as well as to the local Rainbow Girls of DeMolay who provide the food concessions for the two-day show. There are many railroad themed activities that liken the IRF to a county fair of model railroads. They provide a junior engineer program that children love and can get real hands-on experience operating model railroads.
On Saturday, Nov. 11 the hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 and children under 12 are free! There is no charge for parking so whether you are a long-time model railroad enthusiast or interested in learning more this is your chance to check out this family-friendly event. @the Grounds is located at 800 All America City Blvd in Roseville.
