There are some available models on the market that are close to some of the pieces in our collection. Surely they will find their way for a visit. For now, the first thing to focus on is funding for the building. Pass the word.
Right now it sits directly east of Barn 9 on the tracks we refer to as the 'steam leads'. Hard to say where it might be as time goes by. But something will have to be moved or relocated as other operations and special events come to pass during the season. One thing for sure - it is hard to miss!!
Hi, I saw this model railroad project on here and i would love to volunteer. I have been involved in model trains since i was 3, with some O scale and mostly HO scale. I have good knowledge of this hobby considering that im 19 currently. What can i do to help volunteer specifically for this project? I can travel from Chicago where i live to help out. Email me please, i have much to contribute. I am a member of the Museum and again, would love to help out. Regards, Fvd
Thanks for your offer to help. At this point in the project - fundraising - is the biggest hurdle. We are asking for donations and also engaged in other fundraising activity including selling some surplus model railroad equipment at flea markets, meets, and auctions.
