Below are pictures taken during the 2015 Rail Festival of the 7.5 inch gauge trains carrying passengers around the Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society’s track. Visit CPRSS.org for more information on this all-volunteer club.
Rail Festival also includes all other model train scales including G, O, S, HO, N, and Z, which are on display in the buildings and outside throughout the Carillon Park grounds. There are also many vendors selling railroad related items of all scales and many food and drink vendors on the grounds. Culp’s Cafe and the Carillon Brewery will also be serving customers as usual.
