Learn about model train repair, value at annual clinic

FREMONT — Do you have questions about model trains? Does your model train need repair?

Veteran model train hobbyists can help at the annual model train clinic from 1 to 4 p.m. Jan. 5 at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums

Hobbyists can give expert advice about train repair and help estimate the value of some trains. Attendees can also see the “Hayes Train Special” model train display, which is open through Jan. 6.

Nine model trains wind through a winter wonderland with a candy land theme. This three-tiered display has been a Christmas tradition at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums since 1994.

Train clinic participants can try running their model trains on the “Hayes Train Special” tracks. The display fits O-gauge, standard and G-gauge trains.

If there is inclement weather, the train clinic will be canceled. For updates, visit rbhayes.org and the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums social media pages — Facebook, Twitter (@rbhayespres) and Instagram (@rbhayespres).

The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums is America’s first presidential library and the forerunner for the federal presidential library system. It is partially funded by the state of Ohio and affiliated with the Ohio History Connection. The library and museums are located at Spiegel Grove at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues in Fremont.

For information, call 419-332-2081, or visit rbhayes.org.
