La Crosse, WI (WXOW)-- If you frequently drive down La Crosse's Copeland Avenue, you've probably noticed the trains on display in the park.
Saturday, the 4000 Foundation, a local non profit that maintains the display, hosted guided tours of the rail cars. Some of these old trains were built in the 1800s; most of them were retired from service in the 1950s and 60s..
And this weekend was just a preview, of the Rail Fair coming up at Copeland Park in two weeks.
"A lot of casual spectators and families, who drive by here on a daily or weekly basis and want to get up close, see what it's all about," said Mark Hamre of The 4000 Foundation. "A lot of people have never been in a caboose or up close to a steam engine before."
The Rail Fair is on Saturday, July 21, from 10 AM to 5 PM in Copeland Park.
