Great Falls Model Railroad Club

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.

Bangor Savings Bank Voting Underway

The Bangor Savings Bank Foundation is again offering the eight highest vote-getting non-profit organizations an opportunity to receive a grant of $5,000, with an additional sixty nonprofits receiving $1,000. Any Maine resident is eligible to vote for up to three different organizations when entering the Bank’s website. Last year many club members used Museum LA as one of the three different organizations. In turn, Museum LA suggested that its members vote for us.

It is easy to vote. Go on line to www.bangor.com/cmm and vote for The Great Falls Model Railroad Club as a write-in nomination. (Notice that the word “The” is the first word in the official name of the club.)

Voting began February 1 and ends February 28. Encourage friends, family members, email and Facebook contacts to vote for The Great Falls Model Railroad Club online as well. Use #CMM2015 to vote on Twitter. Every vote counts.
