Wan Wert Model Train Show Still on, Pa. Tourist Railroad Cancels 2020 Season due to Pandemic

July 24, 2020

The Van Wert Historical Society still plans to hold its annual model railroad show this weekend.

The event on July 25 and July 26 will open at 10 a.m. on both days and close at 4 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Masks will be required of all attendees and vendors.

Admission to the event is $6 for adults with a two-day pass available for $8. Children age 12 and under will be admitted for free.

The event is being held at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds, 1055 S. Washington, and will have vendor tables and operating model railroad displays. Food will be available for sale.

In an unrelated development the COVID-19 pandemic has led the Oil Creek & Titusville tourist railroad in Pennsylvania to cancel its 2020 season.

In an announcement posted on Facebook, the railroad cited what it termed ever changing rules and regulations.

The OC&T operates over 13.5 miles of former Pennsylvania Railroad track in west central Pennsylvania.

The railroad said it plans to return to operation in 2021.
