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.

NEW LOCATION – Auburn Middle School Train Show – Mt Ararat HS Topsham

Auburn Mall 5-09The Great Falls Model Railroad Club Fall will hold its annual fall train show at Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham on Saturday, November 7, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

NOTE CHANGE OF LOCATION: All of our previous advertising had listed as the site of our annual fall show the Auburn Middle School, where it has been held on the first Saturday of November for nearly 30 years.  This year, however, we are changing the location because of a scheduling conflict, and the Auburn Middle School Drama Club will be holding performances there that weekend instead.

Our annual spring train show is held at Mt. Ararat High School, and we are grateful to them for making this site available
to us for November 7 on short notice.

A highlight of the November 7 show is the club’s large modular layout, which will include new modules created in this fall’s
eight-week Model Railroading Class held at the Great Falls Model Railroading Club.  Dealers from throughout New England will
have model railroad items for sale.  TRAIN TIME videos, produced by the railroad club, will be shown during the day and will
be available for sale.  Refreshment sales will benefit the Mt. Ararat Boosters Club.

Special Train Show at Auburn Mall


On Saturday, August 29, the Great Falls Model Railroad Club will hold a special train show at the Auburn Mall. This will be the third time we have been invited to offer something different for the shoppers at the mall. The modular HO layout and our children’s games will provide entertainment. A children’s play area will be available for the youngest children. Again this year we will have the popular scavenger hunt, with about a dozen stores displaying railroad-related items for the children and their families to find. All activities are free.
