The National Capital Trackers will return to the Kensington Armory (3710 Mitchell St., Kensington) this weekend for its second Kensington Model Train show.
The show, sponsored by Bethesda realtors Gary and Dianna Ditto, is Saturday and Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m..
More than 2,000 came to last year’s show, said Gary Ditto, who got the idea to bring the National Capital Trackers to Kensington.
We are a club of “O” Gauge electric train enthusiasts that enjoy our hobby of running trains and setting up train show layouts at venues in Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland. Our layouts are modular. Members build their own table modules, typically 2′ x 4′ in size. Modules contain two train tracks and are all built to the same specification so that they readily interconnect. An electric bus cable connects to each module to provide electric continuity along the entire layout.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $2 for children and $10 for a family, and proceeds benefit the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation and the Kensington Historical Society.
