LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Great Train Expo wrapped up Sunday at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

The traveling show features model trains, dealers, collectors, exhibits and workshops. So far it has visited dozens of cities around the country from coast to coast.  For one child from Henryville, being able to take part as an exhibitor is well worth the effort.

"It's just cause I like trains so much," said Jude Kopp, the youngest exhibitor. "I've been coming since I was two years old. But I started doing this when I was 9, that's how it really got started. I asked my mom one day If I could set up too. She said we'll find out."

The show continues in Columbus next weekend at the Ohio Expo Center.
