Beneath the Scenes at the Miniature Model Railroad Museum



Saturday, February 20th, 12-3 PM
@ The San Diego Model Railroad Museum // FREE

Below the button controlled coal trains, hand driven railroad ties, and 1/87th scale cacti, lies a complex universe in the San Diego Model Railroad Museum. Explore the subterranean dispatch offices, chicken wire substrates, and networked control panels that support railway operations of the SDMRM Railroads.

Intimate tours of four were lead by an elected guide of the four model railroad clubs:  The San Diego Model Railroad Association, The La Mesa Model Railroad Club, The San Diego Society of N-Scale, and The San Diego 3-Railers. Visitors experienced how each individually organized club builds and operates their landscapes and railways under a unique order of esthetics, scale, and culture.

Following precise timed railway operation methods, tour groups otated through each landscape model. Each tour lasted 1 hour.
