Train group searches for home

WICHITA — Two years ago, the Wichita Toy Train Club lost its lease at the Twin Lakes Shopping Center.

Since then, club members put their collections in storage and have been looking for a permanent home so displays could be available year round for the public to see.

They have yet to find anything.

On Sunday, some of those tiny trains were on display during the club's annual fund raiser train show and swap meet.

What is needed is a building with 4,000 to 5,000 square feet, said Jason Ingels, the club's president.

Some of the club's members are willing to buy or rent a building space, Ingels said, but the right building has yet to present itself.

"Right now, we are open to a lot of suggestions," Ingels said.
