Our club participates in several Special Events throughout
The Annual Holiday Open House is an opportunity for the public to view the club layout. It is opened on weekends from the Saturday after Thanksgiving through the first weekend after the New Year. The doors are open from 12:00 p.m. (noon) until 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. At the Open House we run 3 or 4 trains simultaneously over the entire layout and we change out the trains as running conditions and desire dictate. In 2016, our Open House event will run on Saturdays and Sundays from November 26, 2016 through January 8, 2017. We will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as well as New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. The flyer for the Holiday Open House can be seen by clicking here.
Our club also partners with the New Eagle Volunteer Fire Department to hold an Annual Train Show and Sale. Numerous vendors offer their wares to attendees, there are modular displays so that attendees may see running trains and there may also be classes on various subjects pertaining to model railroading. This event is held in the New Eagle VFD Social Hall in late January at 156 Chess Street, New Eagle. The date of the next Train Show is January 29, 2017.

We also display our modular layout at the August Fun Fest in Cedar Creek Park usually held on the second Sunday in August. This year the date is August 14, 2016. This is a great chance for us to meet many members of the public who come out for the fair and introduce them to this wonderful hobby.
