Trains 4 Kids
Thank you for your interest in our Trains 4 Kids program. The Trains 4 Kids layout was over 20 years old and had reached the end of its life.
We have discovered that parents who bring their children in the main club model railroad rooms realize how much work is involved to make it look realistic. We have added a number of interactive buttons that operate lights, sound and animation to enhance both the children and adult visitors experience. We also are working on several educational posters that we can use to explain how a steam engine works and how the railroad signal system works. There are two swap meets a year and we host several school classes each year to teach train operation, train safety and the basics of construction of the model railroad.
Swap Meets in 2020
We have about 50 enthusiastic members with many different skills. If you are considering building your own layout being a member is a good way to leatn all the skills required. Membership costs $25 a month.
