Construction is underway on the layout expansion project, which consists 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. 

The event is Sunday February 9th from Noon to 5pm at Lansing Model Railroad Club, 5309 Old Lansing Road, Lansing MI 48917.

Parking is free!

Located in Delta Township, the Lansing Model Railroad Club is a 50-member, nonprofit organization founded in 1953. The club resides in the historic Millet railroad depot, which was moved from the Grand Trunk Western Railroad property in the 1960’s. Members volunteer their time to maintain the depot, along with improve and expand the model railroad layout.

There's a lot more from Perry-Laingsburg Pulse to see and hear, including this week's top stories! Keep going!

Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
