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 501(c)(3) organization; any donations may be tax-deductible.

Most members come from the Lewiston-Auburn area, but everyone is welcome to join.

We are open to the public!  Come visit us:
Wednesday 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m. until Noon

Other hours by appointment: Contact us HERE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A NOVEMBER SHOW IN TOPSHAM THIS FALL.
We look forward to seeing everyone back in Topsham in April.

Regular Club Meetings are the third Thursday of each month at 6:45 p.m. We will begin showing videos at 6:30 p.m. Come join us!

Next meeting is Thursday, October 20 at 6:45 p.m.
