A miniature Empire State Express trundles down its little track at the annual Rails in the Rockies model train show at the Estes Park Conference Center last year. Cooper Smith of Estes Park watched the Leggo train race around the track at last year's Rails in the Rockies at the Estes Park Conference Center. For 15 years, the Estes Valley Division, a local chapter of the National Model Railroad Association (EVMRA), has been presenting a very special train show in Estes Park, Rails in the Rockies.
The EVMRA is a non-profit organization, interested in promoting model railroading as a hobby. They are active with Partners in Mentoring Youth, Youth in Model Railroading, World's Greatest Hobby and the Honor Society of Estes Park High School. They have an amazing number of private layouts amongst their members, including one of the largest HO scale Moffat Road layouts in the country, a Garden layout, an O-scale layout and several others. Seek and Search -- As families register, children are given a map to follow to find special items. Train Give-Aways -- Children 3-16 -- Donated by Lionel: a Santa Fe Flyer and a Polar Express.
Wyoming Lego Group -- Entire layout made of Legos -- trains, tracks, buildings, people, scenery. There will be little blues among the clanging bells, tooting whistles and blaring horns on Feb.
Take a "Sentimental Journey" on the "A Train" or the "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and learn that "Life Is A Mountain Railroad." You can always return on the MTA and the Wabash Cannonball, if you don't throw mama from the train. The 19th annual show, sponsored by the Estes Valley Model Railroaders, will take place in the Rocky Mountain Park Inn's convention center, located at the junction of Highway 36 and Highway 7, 101 S.
Other children's activities include a Seek and Search game of the railroad exhibits, with prizes on completion, and a drawing for youth (16 and under) that will giveaway four train sets this year. For train enthusiasts, the show provides interactive clinics on how to make model railroad items, from track layouts, to scenery, model building, model weathering and tree construction. Model trains, accessories, posters, railroad art and memorabilia may be purchased from 30 vendors. Skiing, pizza, dog sledding & more in Winter Park, Colorado Published March 6, 2013 Each Colorado ski town has its own unique feel, and Winter Park feels comfortable. Many Coloradans grew up skiing Winter Park, in fact, many of my husband’s earliest ski memories took place there. We stopped in at Hernando’s on Friday night and the wait was 70 minutes – this place is busy year round, but the pizza is worth the wait. Earlier in the day I had fulfilled a childhood dream of dog sledding at Dog Sled Rides of Winter Park.
The free bus system in Winter Park is a great option, but navigating it can be a bit of a challenge.
After a quick discussion with the front desk, we discovered that during the day, you must take the bus to the ski village and then transfer to a bus that goes downtown. We eventually made it downtown and enjoyed our pizza and our awesome waitress, Jill at Hernando’s. My tip for riding the Winter Park bus system is to always tell your driver your final destination, and don’t be in a big hurry to get there. We had a studio apartment at the Iron Horse, complete with bathroom, full kitchen and the most comfortable Murphy bed I’ve ever slept in. My husband skied two days, ripping it up on Mary Jane and having a hell of a good time doing it. And now on to our regular scheduled programming… the following is the transcript from my weekly segment on KRFC 88. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut when it comes to Mother’s Day, flowers and brunch, but how about getting her tickets to dinner theater?
If your mom has a green thumb like my mother, you might consider buying her a pass to the Denver Botanic Garden, or better yet, get her a membership. Another outside the box gift might be classes“¦ has your mom expressed a desire to learn photography or pottery, or tango? Lastly, consider a gift certificate for afternoon tea at a fancy establishment like the Brown Palace in Denver or the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.
Here’s something different, the Second Annual Aerial Acrobatics Arts Festival is this weekend at the Oriental Theater in Denver – a great venue by the way.
May 14th through the 20th is American Craft Beer Week, and in Northern Colorado you can participate in Beer Bingo. I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the new History Colorado museum in Denver this week, and I am so excited to share this blog post with you.


I grew up visiting museums, and I really love them, so I’m not completely unbiased when it comes to writing about museums. There are lots of film festivals across Colorado, and I rarely mention them because there are so many and most are fairly typical, however, sometimes one catches my eye.
The festival promotes the work of grassroots filmmakers who tell compelling and entertaining stories of back country, non-motorized recreation and environmental preservation.
Participants create their very own Titanic-sized millinery masterpiece with the help of historic fashion experts. This weekend at the Loveland Ski Area it’s the annual New Belgium Brewing Scavenger Hunt brought to you by the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado.
In my work as a freelance writer in Colorado, I’ve had the opportunity to write about many wonderful organizations and realized HeidiTown was an additional platform where I can give them support. Last month’s featured nonprofit was Freedom Service Dogs, an organization that trains shelter dogs to help military vets returning with physical disabilities or mental trauma. This month’s featured organization is Longhopes Donkey Shelter located in Bennett, Colorado. Speaking of things Irish, the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival, which started as the Fort Collins Irish Festival in 2008, will be returning to Fort Collins Civic Center Park this year.
While in Greeley, you should check out my favorite pub in all of Colorado, Patrick’s Irish Pub on 8th Avenue.
FYI: I am giving away tickets to the KRFC Birthday Bash on this Thursday, March 8, so please tune back into the blog on Thursday to enter! New this year in Fort Collins, after the parade, stay downtown and enjoy and Irish Party with live music and green beer in Old Town Square.
For beer lovers this Friday and Saturday, Avery Brewing Company in Boulder Presents the 10th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Horse lovers won’t want to miss the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo at the National Western Complex in Denver this weekend. While most of the displays take great pains and pride in realism, the Lego display is complete fantasy with space invaders, attack dinosaurs, zombies and a bug train. From 2 to 92, the Estes Park show balances interest and fun for the kids, along with lots of activities for railroad buffs and serious modelers. The wonder of trains -- a little boy takes in a model train display at Rails in the Rockies. The details both in the trains as well as their surroundings were nothing short of artistic. The display used more than 100,000 Leggo pieces to complete and was one of the most popular eye-poppers.
Model railroading spans chasms, to connect hobbyists like miniature bridges over tiny landscapes.
Of special note is the Legos layout from Cheyenne, Wyo., built entirely from Legos, which was a crowd-pleaser last year, in its debut appearance. The show contains more than 16,000 square feet of model railroad layouts and related displays and exhibits of interest to spectators of all ages.
In addition, some members are interested in other aspects of railroading -- scenery, layout-building details, etc. The Estes Valley Model Railroad Association division of the National Model Railroad Association meets the first Wednesday of the month at the Estes Valley Library.
Club members will be available throughout the show, doing demonstrations and modeling classes and answering questions. 18 and 19, as trains from the steam age to the present time roar along tracks of model railroad layouts, cheering the Inner Child in all. Notable are the popular LEGO layout that changes yearly, layouts of various scales that represent railroad history from across the country, unique layouts by Colorado modelers, and several layouts devoted to children.

I was covering Grand Park Dog Days of winter, a sanctioned sled dog race, and you can see all the photos here. Pizza places are dime a dozen in ski towns, and Winter Park is no exception, but the pizza at Hernando’s is exceptional, plus, the 20,000+ dollar bills plastering the walls give it an ambiance all its own. We managed to catch a bus back to Iron Horse, but got a quite a tour of Winter Park before getting back to our condo. This is where we got our ski rentals and the staff couldn’t be nicer – even on a crazy, busy Presidents Day weekend, they were friendly and fun. The resort was busy and there were some lines on day two, when the top of the mountain closed due to high winds, but it was a beautiful ski weekend.
With everything the town and resort has to offer, plus outstanding opportunities for more winter adventures within easy driving distance, such as snowmobiling in Grand Lake, cross-country skiing at Devil’s Thumb Ranch or tubing at CO Adventure Park in Fraser, Winter Park makes an ideal location for a winter getaway. Yes, Sunday is Mother’s Day and if that caught you off guard, I suggest you get those flowers ordered today! The Mishawaka’s 2012 Summer Season opens in Bellvue, Colorado this Saturday with Head for the Hills kicking off the celebration.
The festival is the first of its kind anywhere and showcases aerialists from North American to be judged in two competitions. Pick up your bingo card at a participating brewery, and as far as I can tell, nearly all NoCo breweries from Berthoud’s City Star to all the big boys in Fort Collins are participating. However, the fact that I have toured so many makes me a pseudo museum expert, and most museums, especially those focusing on history, feel very similar, but I am here to tell you that History Colorado is truly different.


On Friday, March 30th, the Colorado Mountain Club will host the Winter Wildlands Alliance’s Backcountry Film Festival at the Wildlife Experience in Parker. This is the seventh annual world tour of the festival and the 90-minute program features some of the most extreme winter athletes in the world. This downtown festival has an Easter Bonnet contest, gardening tips, music, vendors, food and dancing.
Every month, I personally select a Colorado-based nonprofit organization to introduce to the community and be featured on the blog all month long. So mark September 28 through the 30th on your calendar and join me in a jig at this very fun event. Patrick’s Day event, check out the Celtic Tenors at Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley. If you prefer, you can listen to the  audio HERE, or read through the following transcript of the show. There are also parades in Colorado Springs, Greeley, and of course, right here in Fort Collins. The party is being held at Lincoln Center and is a fundraiser for KRFC, Fort Collin’s very own public radio.
This huge event runs the 9th through the 11th and there are over 150 presentations being given at the event in 7 venues. The 15th annual Rails in the Rockies crosses those bridges next weekend, to bring out the rail-riding Inner Child at the Rails in the Rockies 2012, sponsored by the Estes Valley Division of the National Model Railroad Association Saturday, Feb. In addition, there are many hobby items, from books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, trains, wall hangings, photographs, clothing and tools for making your layout just perfect! The drawings will be held on Sunday afternoon, and though it is not necessary to be present, model railroaders would love it if you were here to accept your prize.
With the number of vendors on the premises, it is likely that you will be able to find whatever you need to complete your layout. Here, children can actually "work" on a layout -- there are plenty of knowledgeable adults around to help, as well. These working exhibits include models of trains from many regions of the United States, as well as selected models of British railroads, all of which have been crafted in detail by dedicated model railroaders from all over Colorado.

In 1978, when the Winter Park Ski Area was being developed by the City of Denver, the town was renamed Winter Park. Unfortunately, in an attempt to go downtown, we got on the wrong school bus and proceeded to take a tour of the resort, eventually ending up back at Iron Horse.
As a below average skier, I didn’t spend long on the mountain, but had a great time watching GoPro Racing from the deck of the Derailer Bar, and drinking a bloody Mary complete with bacon garnish. Check with your local community college, rec center or chamber, to find a class your mom might enjoy. The material will be for spring or summer hats, but on September 15, you can return to the museum to create a winter hat. To give you a few hints, some of the fun includes hunting for Bigfoot and chasing down an angler.
The Facebook page is such a great addition to HeidiTown, because I can tell you about a bunch of events and festivals that never make the blog or the radio show. I’ve had the opportunity to visit the facility and meeting a donkey will smash all the stereotypes you once held about these animals. This international sensation tours the world, and will bring you to tears with their amazing rendition of Irish Classics.
The live music showcase will include Ben Taylor, John Common and the Blinding Flashes of Light, Fierce Bad Rabbit, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Jaden Carlson and Martin Gilmore.
Denver’s Old House Society hosts the event that offers resources and workshops specifically for people who own homes over 50-years-old. Model designers often fashion displays to resemble real rail towns and rail lines of the area.
I love these crazy mountain resort events, like the Cardboard Classic in Steamboat Springs. Cowboy tales, a craft show and an holistic horse fair are just three of dozens of events scheduled for the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. The fair includes an antique road show, notable Denver appraisers, workshops on all kinds of subjects and exhibitors will be on hand to showcase products and services. No need for fancy clothes, the most recent ski gear or a brand new car, just come as you are and have fun. Here in Fort Collins don’t miss the big parade downtown and after party in Old Town Square. I participated in that one and will never forget sliding down the mountain in our cardboard shotski… that event coincides with the Steamboat Springalicious Festival in April.
The group is a non-profit organization, interested in promoting model railroading as a hobby, and the Division donates funds and railroad-related items to the Estes Valley library and needy charities in the area. If you have not been to Rails in the Rockies for a while, just wait 'til you see the changes.Many of the set ups at the annual Rails in the Rockies strive for realism.
