THE AUGUSTA TRAIN SHOW
FEBRUARY 16, 2019
By Paul Lodge
The Great Falls Model Railroad Club will be participating in the Whitefield Lions Club Dollhouse and Train Show at the Augusta Armory at 179 Western Avenue on Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, free for children under 12, and a family limit cost of $10.
During the 30 years that we have participated in this show, we have connected with old friends and made many new contacts. The club has displayed different modular layouts at the show each year, including many modules that were built by people in our Adult Education Model Railroad Classes. The club always rents several sales tables, and sales of surplus assets help pay the expenses of the club. There will be model railroad layouts from other clubs and many dealers selling model railroad and dollhouse items.
By combining model railroading and dollhouse displays, guests see how these hobbies complement each other. Dollhouse modelers enjoy our scenery, which for them is landscaping. Many model railroaders find small items from the dollhouse hobby which work with model railroading as well.
