A number railroad events are held in the APRHF Silver Rails Event Center each year including the one shown in
the above photos and the
APRHF Annual Silver Rails Model Train Show.
The event center is available to be rented out for weddings, conferences, conventions and other events.
All profits from the event center go to the non-profit American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation.
The APRHF Silver Rails Event Center has a full liquor license. Please contact us for your next event,
whether railroad related or not!
