It's a bi-annual event that brings hundreds each time, the Tri-State Model Railroaders train show at Joplin Museum Complex.
Vendor Mel Walbridge jokes that it brings children in age two to 89.
"It's a place for them to come to buy equipment or trains whatever they want, also it's a place for vendors to trade, swap or whatever, add to their layout, whatever it might be," Walbridge said.
The next train show will take place in March.
