All Aboard!

If you are a model railroad enthusiast, the Pacific & Eastern Model Railroad Club has made its home at the Putnam County Museum and wants to hear from you.

If you run a train under your Christmas tree, a model railroad layout in your attic or basement; whether it’s N-scale, HO-scale, O-scale or G-scale; or you are looking for someone to share some of your favorite childhood memories with, come join the members of the Pacific & Eastern Model Railroad Club at the Putnam County Museum on Thursday evening, May 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

We will share the history of the Pacific & Eastern Model Railway, discuss railway history of Greencastle and Putnam County, listen to some of your favorite train or model railroad stories, talk about model railroading as a hobby, and discuss some scenery tips.

Activities include crafting scale trees that you can then take home to your layout or “plant” on the Pacific & Eastern; and of course, operating sessions for the model trains. These events are free and open to the public and are being held in partnership with the Pacific & Eastern Model Railroad Club, the Putnam County Museum and Greencastle Parks & Recreation Department.

For more information, please feel free to contact the Greencastle Parks & Recreation Department at 765-653-3395 or at www.greencastleparks.com.
