The Middle Georgia Model Railroad Club will host the annual Planes and Trains show Nov. 19-26 at the Museum of Aviation Century of Flight Building. The show features more than 10 miles of model railroad tracks with a special Christmas display.

“This year’s show will be the largest show ever,” said Ken Joyner, Middle Georgia Model Railroad Club member. “The circus module, a favorite for the last three years, has even more attractions, including moving rides and more animal replicas,” he said. A personal O gauge train that belonged to Chick-fil-A founder Truitt Cathy is on loan for the show. The cars all have Chick-fil-A themes.

This year’s Planes and Trains show is dedicated to the memory of Ed Lusk, long-time member and past president of the railroad club, and to Cole Pruitt, also a long-time member.
