This week the Union Pacific Railroad confirmed that they will be a $5,000 sponsor of the Banning Centennial Train Festival, which will take place on October 19th and 20th in Banning, CA.
The Festival will be a trainload of fun for the entire family. This will be a captivating event celebrating our heritage as a railroad town and bringing together railroading, model trains and the history of Banning.
The Festival will feature railroad history and artifact exhibits, childrenâ€™s train rides, displays of current railroad and transit operations, model railroad presentations, hobby clinics, operating scale model railroads, a model train contest, a model train and railroad collectible/antique swap meet and information booths for historical and hobby and community groups. There also will be a free self-guided model railroad layout tour in conjunction with the Festival.
Whether you have a long-running interest in railroads, are just starting to explore the fascinating train hobby, are looking to discover local culture and history or are seeking a day of family-friendly entertainment, this Festival is for you.

Thanks for posting this info, Bob. Haha, when I first read the thread title, I thought UPRR was in favor of "banning" all train festivals for some reason; maybe because they led to delinquency or something!
Pretty funny; probably because of the crazy times we live in.
Hope to make it to the Banning Festival- I've always been a big SP fan.
