Thanks to everyone for a very successful 2014 Model Railroad Open House event. Layout owners reported excellent attendance and lots of new faces. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year. We will start our process for the 2015 open house schedule on August 15th. We collect dates from layout owners from August 15th to September 15th and we hold to our deadlines. New layout owners should contact me directly for instructions and information. As always, I prefer that all layout owners proactively send their open house info in during our time frame. We can't promise we will call you if we do not hear from you.

Thanks to all who donated so generously in 2014 towards the costs of maintaining this site. I also want to take a moment and thank our volunteers that assisted this year including Joe Walters, John Lassahn, Chuck Kaydk, Jerry Britton, PJ Mattson, Forrest Lucas, Fran Giacoma, Lee Rainey, Bob Jans and finally to Karen Darling who handles our website and does an awesome job. Be safe and support our local hobby shops and do some model railroading!

NOTE:  If you are hosting an open house and have a picture of your layout that you would like featured in the rotating pictures at the top of each page for next year, please email it to Karen prior to September 15, 2015 at  Each picture must be at least 500 x 200 pixels.  I'd prefer you send the full size image. Cell phone photos are often not adequate. Keep in mind that I need to use a portion of the picture that will show your trains and/or layout in the 500 px wide x 200 pixel tall rectangular area.  I'll let you know if it is acceptable.  Due to the large number of folks participating, only one picture from each person will be used.  It is possible that due to content and/or layout of the scene, it might not be suitable. If your layout has a name and website, please let me know and I will include it in the listing.

Thanks to those who donated to the cost of running the site!  Karen Darling
