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.

Surplus Inventory Sale

Surplus Inventory Sale

GFMRRC Surplus Inventory saleOn Saturday, December 13, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Great Falls Model Railroad Club is holding our first “Surplus Inventory Sale.” The purpose of the sale is to give club members and the general public a chance to purchase model railroad items which are too numerous to bring to a train show.





Surplus Inventory for saleAbout a dozen tables will be filled with items ranging from G-gauge to n-scale. Buildings, structures, track, locomotives, rolling stock and train sets will be available. Some of the items are still in their original kits.






GFMRRC Surplus Inventory sale

December 13 was chosen as the date for our first Surplus Inventory Sale because it is so close to Christmas that it’s an ideal time to purchase model railroad supplies as Christmas presents for children of all ages. This is also a great opportunity for club members and other modelers to purchase items at reasonable prices to use on their home layouts.
