Please note this event has moved to Sunday only this year. The Lansing Model Railroad Club is hosting an open house in conjunction with Woldumar Nature Center's "American Heritage Festival." See trains running on the club's beautiful HO scale layout and progress on the new multi-level expansion. Spectators can get a bird's-eye view of most of the layout from an overhead walkway. Trains run using North Coast Engineering digital command control (DCC). The layout is housed in the former Grand Trunk Western Millet Depot.

Also see progress on restoring the former Michigan Avenue (MA) Tower, which was moved to the property in 2016. Once restored, plans call for the tower to be used as our dispatcher's office for the model railroad.

After visiting the club, visit Woldumar Nature Center to see the Peninsular Model Railroad Club's modular layout, blacksmiths, woodworking, covered wagon rides, and much more. Visitors should note the club and property are under construction. Guests are urged to watch where they walk.
