Ease into the season with the Model Railroad Celebration
The annual model railroad celebration at the Maine State Museum in Augusta is an excellent low-key pre-Christmas activity that the whole family can enjoy! We took in the one-day show last Saturday – and despite the cold, rainy weather – the turnout was brisk. You’ll want to put this show on your calendar for next December!
The show was hosted by the Great Falls Model Railroad Club and the Maine 3-Railers Club.

There were several layouts, our favorites being the Maine-inspired scenes and the miniature saw mill – while the younger crowd was enthralled with the Polar Express. My personal favorite was the miniature scale version of a working potato farm in Aroostook County (see above). The attention to detail is amazing!
