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.

Tom Coulombe

Tom Coulombe of Lewiston died on Monday, June 7, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Tom was a past president of The Great Falls Model Railroad Club and until 2016 was the Station Master and Treasurer of the club, two offices in which he provided valuable expertise for several years.

Tom and his wife Carmen were active participants in all of the special events at the railroad club.  Tom helped mentor members of the Model Railroading Classes taught at the club every year and coordinated the club’s annual spring and fall model railroad shows in Auburn and Topsham.

As a Boy Scout leader, he helped local Scouts and Scouts at national jamborees earn their railroading badges, using “Time Saver” layouts like the one he frequently brought to the railroad club’s Family Night at Governor’s Restaurant.  By a unanimous vote at the club’s annual meeting in May, the meeting room at The Great Falls Model Railroad Club has now been named “Coulombe Hall.”
