November is National Model Railroad Month. Once again, the Susquehanna Valley Model Railroaders (SVMR) have an open house planned for the event. Many of the participating model railroads are PRR-themed.
Across seven Pennsylvania counties, the SVMR has 12 different layouts open over two days -- November 1st and 2nd. You can download the schedule from the SVMR web site. The event is co-sponsored by the Susquehanna Division, Mid-Eastern Region, National Model Railroad Association.
The division is also sponsoring open houses across its other 25 Pennsylvania counties over the second and third weekends of the month.
The schedule for the massive Model Railroad Open House managed by Bruce Friedman has been posted as well. All of the above are included and there are a record breaking 130 layouts open on this year's tour. This tour has its roots in the greater Philadelphia area, southern New Jersey, Delaware, and northeast Maryland. In recent years it has co-marketed the efforts of the SVMR and the Susquehanna Division.
Mark your calendar and get out for a day or two of "training"!
