Rochester Model Railroad Club will hold its annual open house from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 4 and from 1 to 5 p.m. on March 5 at First Universalist Church, 150 S. Clinton St., Rochester.
The train layout is a 40-foot-by-60-foot layout featuring a HO scale railroad that winds its way from Pennsylvania through the rolling hills of Western New York to Buffalo, passing through towns such as Geneva and Caledonia. The Seneca Valley Railroad is a fictitious railroad modeled after various railroads in the Western New York area. Members have used photos, actual plans and on-site visits and pictures to recreate many of the actual scenes, buildings and bridges of the various railroads and towns in the area. One of the highlights of the layout is the Lehigh Valley Gorget. During the annual open house there will be a continuous parade of trains.
Thomas the Tank Engine will make a special appearance for the children.
Cost is $5; free for ages 12 and younger; $15 family maximum.
