Welcome to the Great Falls Model Railroad Club of Lewiston and Auburn, Maine.
Our purpose is to help promote model railroading as a hobby and an opportunity for community outreach. The club’s main focus is to help educate, not only from our members’ knowledge of model railroading but also for the public’s safety at railroad crossings and on railroad right-of-way areas through our involvement in Operation Lifesaver.
We are a 501c(3) organization so donations are tax-deductible.
Most members come from the Lewiston-Auburn area, but everyone is welcome to join.
