Upcoming Events

The Club takes its train layouts (they’re never the same) to many venues around the state of Maine. We also attend train related shows in the greater New England area. Check back here often to see what is coming up or subscribe to our calendar below.

Club meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7PM, normally  in Richmond. However, this can vary,  so click on any Club Meeting  date  showing below for the latest information on a specific meeting.

We don’t normally meet formally in July or August because so many members are away or busy with summer activities. Most years we have a cookout at a member home during those months. And we don’t normally meet in December because of the busy Holidays and frequent Club activities during the month.

Our Club event schedule and other model railroading events that may be of interest are showing below.
