Working on the model railroad — for 16 years

Master Model Railroader Mike Chandler has spent the past 16 years working on a model railroad in his New Westminster basement — and he figures it will take him another decade to complete.

Chandler is one of the participants in Trains 2013, a model railroad exhibition being held this weekend at the Cameron Recreation Centre in Burnaby, B.C..

Doors are open from 10 a.m. PT to 4 p.m. PT. Entrance costs $10 for adults, $5 for children and seniors and $25 for a family.
