Model Train Show at Auburn Middle School.
Saturday, November 3rd
The Great Falls Model Railroad Club is sponsoring their annual model train show at the Auburn Middle School on Saturday, November 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Displays feature model railroads in various scales built by model train enthusiasts throughout Maine. Additions to The Great Falls Model Railroad Club layout will include new modules created by students in this year’s Model Railroading Class offered through the Auburn Adult Education program. Dealers from around New England will be available to answer questions and to sell new and used model railroad items. Train Time videos, produced by The Great Falls Model Railroad Club and seen regularly on local public television stations, will be shown continuously throughout the day and will be available to purchase.
Refreshment sales benefit the Auburn Music Association, with coffee and donuts throughout the morning and luncheon specials beginning about noon. People can enjoy the refreshments and continue to watch the model train layouts from conveniently located tables and chairs. A play area with age-appropriate model trains is provided for younger children near the tables so that parents can sit and watch their children. Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for those under 15.

Hartmann’s Railroad Museum
On September 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. club members are invited to go to Intervale, New Hampshire, a short distance from North Conway, to visit the Hartmann’s Railroad Museum and Restaurant.
The fee of $20 each will include a meal at the restaurant and allow entrance into the museum.
