Tons of toy trains in Joplin

Local toy train enthusiasts were in luck on Saturday. You could find plenty of them having a blast at the Train Show and Swap Meet at the Joplin History & Mineral Museum.

The show was a great opportunity to check out some of the coolest model train sets around, and even add some pieces to one’s toy train collection.

One attendee told KOAM what makes coming to the show so special.

“They’re my neighbors and friends, and so that’s why I like coming to the local shows,” said train enthusiast Buddy Yockey.

Admission to the show was $3. That money went to support the Joplin History & Mineral Museum.
