National Train Day in Fort Worth - Kids can meet real-life railroad operators, check out vintage equipment, model railroads

Saturday is National Train Day, and people looking for some fun, free stuff to do may want to wander over to downtown Fort Worth.

The event will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones St. in downtown Fort Worth.

TraindayHighlights include: an up-close look at freight and passenger equipment, including some "heritage train equipment" that's pretty old; drawings for free Amtrak train travel; a chance to talk with railroad operators; model railroad displayers, balloon artists, face-painters and music.

A similar event is taking place simultaneously in downtown Dallas.

“It’s a great opportunity to get up close to track-side operating freight locomotives, passenger cars and heritage trains, and watch some operating trains in action,” said Peter LeCody of Texas Rail Advocates.
