ABOUT THIS EVENT
Many of us have played with toy trains as a kid but model railroading takes this to a whole new level. Join us in our model railroad layout as we explore this fascinating hobby. Participants will get a backstage tour of what it takes to build and maintain a layout of our size. You'll see parts not usually open to the public. You'll learn the history of our layout and be guided on a detailed tour examining in detail each section. A train will be set up and you'll get the chance to operate on the layout on your own.
Our space is not well suited for mobility devices. Several stairs will be encountered on our tour. The height of our layout makes viewing from seated levels difficult. We'll make all possible accommodations but cannot guarantee a great experience, unfortunately.
