DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -The Southwest Oklahoma Railroad Association invited the public in for an open house on Saturday so they could witness the joy of model trains.

The Model train club holds two open houses a year to show the public about the hobby of model trains. There was enough on the main track to run up to 15 trains at once this year.

Rick Duncan, Vice president of the Southwest Oklahoma Railroad Association, received his first model train in 1950.  It has been a hobby of his for a very long time and he just wants to show others the joy that can come from model trains.

"We want to let people know that model railroading is a hobby, its a fun thing to do," said Duncan."Some people come out they just enjoy seeing the trains run, it takes them back to their childhood where maybe they had a train set at home"

The group is open to new members. Any one above the age of 16 is welcome to join. The membership fees are 30 dollars a month. If you are interested in joining you can stop by the club for more information at 1803 North 5th Street in Duncan.
