South Dakota's train history being kept alive

By  | 

Rapid City, (KEVN-TV) The Black Hills Railway Society is on track when it comes to keeping South Dakota's train history alive.

Saturday, the club hosted its Fall Open House.
The event showcases the countless hours spent building realistic train models.
While many members of the group are retired, they welcome everyone to their shows because they say the love for trains starts young.

Black Hills Railway Society President, Mike Wolff said, "It started back when I was a kid, I had a train for Christmas, and then when I grew up my son had a train, and I put them in storage for a few years and then one day I decided to dig them out and run them, and it just got out of hand from there. I've got more stuff than I know what to do with."

If you're interested in learning more about the club, the public is always welcome to attend their meetings held in the basement of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association building on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month.
