35th Anniversary Train Show/Open House

35th Anniversary Train Show/Open House

Hosted by The Short Line Model Railroad Club
The Short Line Model Railroad Club will celebrate its 35th Anniversary with an Open House/Train Show. This family event is free and donations will be accepted.
August 10th, 2024
12pm-6pm
The Short Line Model Railroad Club 11 S State Street (Rear)
Ephrata, PA 17522

Guests to the event will enjoy seeing miniature trains rolling through very detailed scenery, representative of northeastern Pennsylvania, on more than 900 feet of double-tracked mainline, and a 75-foot, single-tracked branch line. Many model locomotives feature realistic steam and diesel sounds and are controlled by wireless digital controllers. Visitors will be taken back to the days when coal was king, and the railroads were starting to switch to more modern diesel power while still running steam locomotives.

All phases of various types of layout construction are on display. Club Members will be available during showtimes to discuss the train exhibit and answer questions.

The Short Line Model Railroad Club is always open to new members. If you are interested in joining, ask any member for more information. The club is a great way for model railroad enthusiasts who don’t have their own trains or room for a layout in their home to participate in an enjoyable hobby with others.

Founded in 1989, the Short Line Model Railroad Club has strived to replicate authentic railroad operations in the 1950s with an emphasis on the railroads of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The club currently has 48 members who meet weekly for operating sessions, maintenance, and expanding and upgrading the layout.
