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.

Railroad Club to Hold HO Steam Session

Railroad Club to Hold HO Steam Session
The HO Operating Session at the Great Falls Model Railroad Club on February 24 will use steam power with early diesel yard power. Diesels from the 1930’s or 40’s will be appropriate. Bring your steamers or maybe a boxcab. We will have extra power for those who don’t have dcc steam engines.

Surplus Inventory Sale

On Saturday, May 19, the Great Falls Model Railroad Club will hold a Surplus Inventory Sale at the club house at 144 Mill Street in Auburn from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sales items will include locomotives, rolling stock, railroad memorabilia, books, DVD’s and videotapes. Many of these items have never been displayed at railroad shows.
On the same day and at the same times, on the lower level of the club building, members of the HO crew will hold a continuous series of clinics on the installation and use of DCC, the control system used on our HO layout. Model railroad fans are invited to see the HO layout in operation and to attend as many clinic sessions as you would like.
Both the Surplus Inventory Sale and the DCC clinics are open to the public, and there is no charge for admission.
