Upcoming Broadcasts

The Central Missouri Railroad Association is our host for this week's APRHF's Let's Talk Trains. The CMRRA is having their annual Model Train Show and Swap meet. We will talk about the model rail hobby in central Missouri and how the club is helping preserve the hobby and bring new members into the hobby. Since the train show is held next to the old Wabash, now NS trains, we thought we would invite the Wabash Historical Society to come and pay us a visit too.
