Layout Tours

There will be multiple self-guided layout tour opportunities dur-
ing the convention. The Philadelphia area is a hotbed of model railroad activity and we have a number of layouts, both home and club, to visit. We are attempting to keep all tours and open houses to drives of 60 minutes or less. In addition to the tours scheduled during convention hours, we have a number of layouts open for on-the-way-to and going home.


Below is the preliminary list with tentative times.  We do expect more layouts.  Photos will be forthcoming.  All info is subject to change.  Additional time/location charts and maps will be added as the event draws closer.  For additional information, please contact chair Bill Fagan.
