  • FINAL GATSME Model Railroad Club Open Houses

    After 38 years in the basement of the Old Fort Washington School, GATSME will have to move in 2013. Over the holidays, the club has eight open houses. The first is December 1 and 2 from noon to 4 PM.

    RRL members in the Philadelphia area are all invited. The club is easy to find, just off the Fort Washington Exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Admission is free and we have benches so the little ones can see.

    Directions and plenty of photos on our web site.

    Wednesday night club members lined up the trains for the open house. These are not part of the op sessions but trains that the general public will enjoy.

      It is so sad to think that this will be the last viewing of this railroad. If you are able, you absolutely MUST go see this layout. It is gorgeous.

        We were busy over the weekend with about 400 visitors in two days / eight hours. The railroad performed very well. A few switches thrown under trains, but we will not point fingers.

        Some of our guests had ideas on new places GATSME could move to. We are going to look into those. Here is the crowd:

        Six open houses to go in January and February. And then boom. [:-timebm]
