The Abington Lines Model Railroad Club (ALMRC) is hosting Open Houses for the holidays, to be held at their clubhouse in Richboro.
Each Open House is scheduled from noon until 4:00pm on the following Saturdays and Sundays: December 8th and 9th, December 29th and 30th, January 5th and 6th, January 12th and 13th, February 2nd and 3rd, and February 9th and 10th.
Come marvel at the 20’ x 60’ HO scale railroad set in the Pennsylvania mountains with a two-track mainline that is more than 1,000 feet in length.
The layout includes a circus display, two operating roundhouses, a narrow gauge branch line, waterfront complete with rail car ferries, four industrial switching areas and a picturesque old time town with stores that have realistic interiors, animated neon signs and trolleys that run the whole length of the city.
This year includes expanded automated trolley operation and a refinery area with a new rail-switching yard.
Operating scale locomotives with realistic sound and wireless remote control will be featured.
Admission to the Open House is free. Donations to help the ALMRC grow and improve will be appreciated. In addition, two complete train sets will be offered for raffle ($1 per ticket).
The railroad clubhouse is conveniently located at 2066 Second Street Pike (PA Route 232), Richboro, 18954, two miles North of PA Route 332 on the right, across the road from “Bryan’s Farm” just before the Neshaminy Creek.
