  The National Train Show, hosted by the National Model Railroad Association, kicks off today at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta and runs until Sunday.

The show brings in vendors and enthusiasts from Atlanta and all over the country. The convention features a variety of displays including a Lego MiniLand and an appraiser who will tell visitors the value of their model trains.

WABE’s David Barasoain paid the convention a visit and brought back these sounds.
