New York Society of Model Engineers, Carlstadt, New Jersey
This weekend your entire family is invited to come out and immerse yourselves in “a world of miniature trains”. This is how the New York Society of Model Engineers describes this weekend’s Model Railroad Exhibition event. For 38 years, the “Romance of Railroads” has kept the Society of model train engineers obsessed with building and displaying model trains, making them the oldest model railroad group in the entire country.
The Model Railroad Exhibition event will feature multiple types of model trains riding the rails, covering over 5,000 square feet of ground. One can expect to see passenger trains, freight trains, circus trains, and others. There will be 2 train layouts, one running the larger “O”-scale trains, and the other operating the smaller “HO”-scale trains. The “O”-scale track is 40 by 70 feet, and covers almost 20 scale miles of track. The “HO” layout is a bit smaller, measuring 30 by 45 feet. The trains will be riding amid an unbelievable scenic diorama, chalked full of structures, bridges, tunnels, roadways, and over 100,000 miniature trees. A collection of historic railroad memorabilia will also be on display for your family to enjoy. It includes the largest exhibit of illuminated tail sings, a number of railroad lanterns, steam locomotive bells and whistles, vintage railroad photos, and more.
Admission costs to attend the Model Railroad Exhibition event are $7.00 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the door, the day of the event.
You will absolutely not want to miss out on the opportunity to attend the Model Railroad Exhibition event, occurring this Saturday. The happening promises to provide fun for the whole family, both adults and children alike!
