SALT LAKE CITY -- For the 22nd year, the Utah State Fairpark is hosting the Wasatch Rails Train Show, and event organizers said this weekend’s event is great for people of all ages.

The show features trains of all sizes, from the smallest "Z" scale trains to a ride-on train for kids.

Stan Jennings, the show’s chairman, has been involved with the train show since it started, and he said there's a lot that can be appreciated in this hobby.

“They're big, powerful, they move, then they go places we usually don't go,” he said of trains. “They're just fascinating. There's so many aspects, from just watching, to modeling, to collecting, so many aspects to the hobby."

The show continues Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and admission is $7 for adults. Children 12 years old and under get in for free.
