Grand Opening and Open House: October 4 - 5

The Carleton Railway will be celebrating the "grand opening" of the newly expanded layout on Friday evening and on Saturday, October 4 and 5.  Model Railroad fans are invited to see what has been accomplished since the layout room was expanded in 2017 and an additional 160 feet of main line was added to the railway.  Come on Friday evening (6:30 - 8:30 p.m.) or on Saturday (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.) to tour the layout, to learn about shipping potatoes by rail in the 1960s, or to participate in an operating session on Saturday afternoon.  More details will be posted by mid-September.
