An Introduction to Scale Model Railroading

October 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This class will provide a broad overview of the hobby of model railroading, giving attendees a basic understanding of the information and skills needed to successfully construct a small or large railroad. Attention will be given to the wide variety of locomotives, freight cars, structures, and scenic items that are available. Many photos of private and club railroads in the tri-state area will hopefully inspire interest in visiting these creations. The class will end with a 15 minute video showing operations on Tom’s 15’x27’ Cumberland and Western Railroad.

About the Instructor: Tom Sanders

Tom is a resident of Dock Woods and has been a model railroader since age 12. His modeling culminated in a basement-filling layout that provided many hours of operational fun for a crew of five to six people. In his spare time, Tom worked as a research chemist for Rohm and Haas/Dow. He and his wife Shirley raised two boys; alas, neither has carried on the model railroading tradition.
