Filer is a small town with a lot going on!  The benefit of being home to the Twin Falls County Fair.  This weekend is the town’s biggest event distinct from the fair.  Filer Fun Days features a parade and other activities and in many ways is a reunion.  It brings a lot of people back home from far away.

The Magic Valley Model Railroaders are a vanishing breed.

It’s also an opportunity to visit the model railroad exhibit at the fairgrounds.

This is a dilemma.  The exhibit is clearly the most popular at the fair.  It debuted this past summer in a new building and, yet.  The Magic Valley Model Railroaders are a vanishing breed.  It’s the hope of club members to attract a younger and new generation to the hobby.

The hobby itself is a piece of American culture.  Railroads are history.  If there are no model railroaders, then who’ll care for the exhibit, which doubles as a museum?  Why not take in the parade and then drop by for a look at the trains?  Maybe you’ll catch the bug.
