Sedalia Rails Train Show

Sedalia Rails Train Show

The Sedalia Rail Train show is to support the fundraising for the Pettis County Missouri Historical Society and Museum. We are a Non-Profit 501C organization.


An Add from the 1906s when all the world was young at Christmas.


On a typical December day in 1994 a west bound Metra train calls at Downers Grove Il. One of 120 commuter runs made daily on the BNSF three track main line to Chicago. Happy Holidays to all our friends on Facebook.

Selling tables are going fast so make your reservations soon.


There has been a slight change to the November 5 , 2022 Sedalia Rails Show. Sadly the Liberty Flyer 15 inch gauge railroad will not be running this year as it failed the state inspection for such rides. There is a problem with the braking system that will need to be repaired over the winter.

However there will be enough layouts running to keep the kids entertained and each will receive a complimentary engineers hat as supplies courtesy of AMTRAK while supplies last. Kids under 12 are free to enter the show and enjoy the trains. This year will feature a large "Z" scale layout as well as HO and O Gauge Lionel trains.


Attention vendors the Sedalia Rails November 5 Train show tables are selling fast so get your reservations in today. Contac t us at 660-668-0899 for reservations.

The Sedalia Mo Park District has refurbished the Liberty Land Train in Liberty Park. Since 1954 the 15 inch gauge railroad has entertained generations of area children. The train operates Saturday and Sunday afternoons until Labor Day. The train will also be operating, weather permitting, during the Sedalia Rails Train show on November 6 2021. This will be the 9th Annual show in the Liberty Park Convention Center.


A Missouri Pacific freight train passes the old Sedalia, MO depot in 1948. In 1952 the depot second story was removed and the lower half "modernized" . It was remodeled again in the early 2000s and is today's AMTRAK depot. AMTRAK is a great way for visitors to come to the Sedalia Rails Train Show on November 6. There are two trains daily between Kansas City and St. Louis. Pettis County Museum Photo
