NMRHA Model Train Club now open to the public
The NMRHA model train club in Crosslake is now open on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. The new building, located downtown on County Road 66, is in the final phase of construction. Just look for the black steam engine-shaped sign in front of the building. Some finishing work will still be underway on the interior of the facility for the next few weeks, but the public is welcome to visit the museum and see the new building and the progress made in construction of the new train layouts.
Almost everything was lost in the June 2018 fire, so it is necessary to start over constructing new layouts, now that the new museum building is almost completed. The museum members have already begun building the Garden Scale (G scale) layout in the lower level, and the trains are running! The children’s layout, which they can control, features Thomas the Train, and is currently operational.
Loaner layouts, operating on the main floor, have been graciously provided by the Twin City Model Railroad Museum. These loaner layouts will be operating for several months while the NMRHA members construct the new G scale, O scale (Lionel), and HO layouts.
