QUINCY (WGEM) -- Train enthusiasts have flocked to Fort Madison this weekend for the first annual River and Rail Weekend.
Organized by Virtual Railfan and the Lake Cooper Loop, organizers said the weekend brings together train enthusiasts for a weekend of fun in Iowa and Illinois communities.
They said it's important to get people out into the region so they can experience all it has to offer.
"We are more than just the one town, we are a region to be visited so there is so many different places to see and do, do in the whole area so we all work together to pull it together," Lake Cooper Loop president Chi Eastin said.
