Model Railroad Open House

Today is the final day this year for the DelMarVa Model Railroad Club Open House.  Of course, we will have two more weekends this coming January to round out the 32nd Annual Open House Season.  What amazes me is the number of people I greet who are bringing their youngsters out to see the trains who came as a child!  I am also amazed to greet the “first timers”.  The club has been around for 33 years, and located in the same place for 32! It really is a tradition in many families in Maryland and Delaware to come “see the trains in Delmar” in November, December and January.  Disclaimer — I am the lady sitting at the front counter, shamelessly selling raffle tickets for 3 great train sets!  Check out this one –

Share with your friend in the Mid-Atlantic region, and come out this weekend or in January to see the great model train displays.

The club is located at 103 E. State Street in Delmar DE on the 2nd floor of Camelot Hall (Sorry, no elevator). Park behind St Stephens United Methodist Church.  Free admission, donations appreciated!

  1. Oh my goodness – my daddy and his Train Friends attended the Delmarva Open house at least one year! How wonderful that this is the first post I see on my first visit to your blog. Daddy (who died waaayyy too early some 17 years ago) accumulated an impressive train collection. He had some of everything, with O gauge being his favorite and N gauge his least favorite. Hope it was a successful event and that you sold lots of raffle tickets. Gotta look for that Harry Potter train for my grandson.

    • Thanks for finding my blog & taking time to comment. From what I observe, the love of model railroading has spanned generations! We have visitors who are bringing their 2nd & 3rd generation to come see the trains. If you are out & about in January, put a visit on your calendar. There is a photo of the flier on the blog post with the dates & times, and you are most certainly welcome! Bring a step stool for the grandson! Thanks for sharing your great memory of your dad.
