Providence Northern Model Railroad Club
December 2016 Open House

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

10AM to 4PM

The annual open house has been scheduled!  Fun for the whole family!

Suggested Donations:

Adults $2.00

Family maximum $5.00

Children under 12 free

The layout is 35 feet by 60 feet with a 400 foot double track mainline, a separate single track branch line, and supported by many staging yards.

The mainline and branch lines are operational with staging yards, scenery, and computer-based signals in various stages of completion.

During your visit you might see some or all of these trains running on the layout:

  • The Hogwart Express,
  • The Acela Express,
  • Thomas the Train,
  • Passenger express trains,
  • Freight trains,
  • Yard engines switching railcars in the switching yards,
  • other surprises?


The layout is based on the New England area in 1985 from Providence RI to Northern Vermont and reaching Montreal, Canada via staging.

Many more trains will be running during our Open House than during our normal public hours.  It's great holiday fun for the whole family!

Providence Northern Club Car kits will also be available for purchase at the event.
