LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Train enthusiasts of all ages from around the area took over the La Crosse center Saturday to buy, sell and trade train memorabilia.
The 27th annual Great Tri-State Rail Sale was held in La Crosse Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Hundreds of vendors from the region gathered for the event put on by the 4000 Foundation. The foundation has a goal of restoring and maintaining the La Crosse Shortline Railroad Heritage Museum in Copeland Park.
Organizers at the 4000 Foundation say this year was a record-breaking success.
"We've got a record number of vendors. We've got like 310 tables in here from vendors from about four or five different states, local and out of town. Great crowd," said 4000 Foundation president Mark Hamre.
The foundation will be hosting another event on July 28th in Copeland park.
