Catch the Trains: Model Railroad Exhibit at the South Garland Branch Library

Thursday, August 22, 2019

The Nicholson Memorial Library System and the Spring Creek Model Railroad Club host a free Model Train Exhibit open to the public Aug. 22 to 24 at the South Garland Branch Library.

The exhibit’s layout measures 32 by 40 feet with approximately 300 feet of dual mainline track, seven switching areas, an HOn3 narrow-gauge line, and a 30-foot main switching yard. The models represent many eras of railroading from the 1880s to the present day and operate steam, diesel, freight, and passenger equipment. Knowledgeable hobbyists can share their expertise on how to build and run model trains and answer questions during the exhibit. 

1 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24
South Garland Branch Library

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Spring Creek Model Railroad Club. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion.
