Burlington Route Historical Society


In 2015, Trainfest introduced the Celebrate-a-Railroad program. As part of the program, they display a spectacular museum quality, 32-panel, display on the featured railroad.

The CB&Q was the featured railroad this year! This was a unique and awesome opportunity for our Society and a chance to grow our membership. This is a big deal for us, so we were hard at work combing the archives and personal collections for display materials and the history of the Q. Manufacturers and hobby shops sold special commemorative CB&Q merchandise, and the exhibiting model railroads ran Burlington equipment!

The display was sponsored by the BNSF Foundation.

The show was November 9th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the 10th from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. The show is located at the Wisconsin State Fair Grounds at:8200 W. Greenfield Avenue West Allis, WI 53214.
