Operating Sessions

We typically operate our HO layout from about 9 until noon on the first Saturday of each month and on the Saturday following the third Thursday of the month.

If you would like to see the Great Falls Railroad come to life, consider stopping by! Of course, there’s always the risk you might be asked to operate a train, but that’s a chance worth taking…

Next Sessions:

After the May 21 session, we will be only operating once a month while major track renovations are underway between Chase and Mechanic Falls

Saturday, July 23 – 9:00 a.m. until noon

With a chunk of the Freight Main Line out of service for trackwork, we are detouring traffic for Obie via the Loops and the Mountain Sub. This will result in much heavier than normal traffic through Lewiston Lower, and Intermodal moves on the Mountain Sub. Come check it out!!!
