November Model Railroad Open House Event

Each November, model railroaders in our area open their layouts to the public. This event, which began over 30 years ago with a handful of northern Delaware layouts, has grown to well over a hundred including all of DE, eastern MD, southern NJ, and central and southeastern PA. This is a wonderful way to promote the hobby of model railroading. If you are interested in hosting an open house, or wish to obtain the schedule, please consult the modelrailroadopenhouse.com website for more info.
