The holidays and trains just seem to go together. Model trains of all shapes and sizes can be seen at the Youngstown Model Railroad Association Fall Open House, the weekends of November 4, 5 & 11, 12 and December 2, 3 & 9, 10. The Club is located at the corner of Raccoon Road and Four Mile Run Road in Austintown. The hours are 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. all eight days.
The Youngstown Model Railroad Association is one of the few clubs in the country that has two complete displays, ‘O’ scale and the smaller ‘HO’. Both extensive layouts feature over 100 scale miles of track each! The ‘HO’ layout is currently completing the steel mill complex and its track work along with several upgrades to lighting and buildings in the city and industrial park areas. The ‘O’ scale layout is currently undergoing a major renovation as the locomotive roundhouse area is being completely redone and several scenery upgrades are being done on the entire layout. Time seems to stand still as fast freight and colorful passenger trains wind their way around the scenic railroads, often disappearing into tunnels to reappear on the other side of the room. Bring the whole family and join us for a few fun-filled hours. A courtesy donation of $5.00 per person is requested. Children 11 and under with an adult are free.
