Bryson Peters, 6, left, and his father, Jason Peters, visited the Kanawha Valley Railroad Association's model train display for the first time Saturday. Both father and son couldn't believe how real the exhibit -- at the KVRA's clubhouse, 1800 Coonskin Dr. -- looked.
The model train display features everything West Virginia, including a downtown Charleston circa the 1950s.
Bob Sutler, a member and treasurer of the Kanawha Valley Railroad Association since it started 35 years ago, said the model train display area right behind him would soon feature a chemical plant. The exhibit has had few changes in the last 12 years, he said.
Coal mining is one of the many West Virginia staples on display at the model train exhibit.
