The 2015 spring semester Model Railroading class starts on Tuesday, February 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The Great Falls Model Railroad Club has been offering this eight-week course for more than twenty years. The classes were originally given at Edward Little High School as part of the Auburn Adult Education program. The course is still part of Auburn Adult Education, but it has been taught at the clubhouse on Mill Street in Auburn for the past five years.
Hundreds of people have taken the class, and many of them have become club members. Nearly every time the class has been offered in the past several years, children have taken the course with their parents or grandparents. This makes the class a family event. Our club has a 501c(3) Educational Foundation designation, and the course exemplifies the club’s commitment to the basic educational philosophy.
The class has been successful because many club members help. Usually there are enough volunteers so that each student has a club member to work with him or her.
People can register for the course through the Auburn Adult Education program by calling 784-9220. The registration fee is $15. For more information about taking the course or helping students,
