The Lansing Model Railroad Club is hosting an open house in conjunction with Woldumar Nature Center’s “American Heritage Festival,” Sunday September 29th from 10am to 5pm. Model trains will be running on the club’s beautiful HO scale layout complete with cities, industrial scenes, rolling country sides, mountains, and bridges. Visitors can get a bird’s-eye view of the action from an overhead walkway.

Construction is underway on the layout expansion project, which will consist of three different levels. The expansion will increase train operations, add more cities, add more industries, and include a large passenger train terminal modeled after the former Detroit Fort Street Union Depot. This is a great opportunity for people interested in building a model railroad to learn how it is done. Also, see the club's progress on restoring the former Michigan Avenue (MA) Tower that was moved in September 2016. Installed last June are three full-sized wayside railroad signals and a related equipment bungalow.
Free parking is available on asphalt lot, which eliminated parking on a grassy or muddy surface.
More family events will be happening at the Woldumar Nature Center, which is approximately ½ mile west of the Lansing Model Railroad Club. There also will be trains rolling on the Peninsular Model Railroad Club’s award-winning modular layout. Other activities and demonstrations include blacksmiths, woodcarving, wagon rides, quilters, and much more.
The event is free.
