The month of November is celebrated by model railroaders as National Model Railroad Month. In accordance with this practice, Grace Lutheran Church (2300 Eddleman Road, Orange, Tx) and Tex La Model Railroad Club will have an Open House for model trains on November 24 (Friday) and 25 (Saturday) from 10 am to 5 pm. Tex La has new modules they are working on for their portable layout and are anxious to show their progress so far to the public. There will be a small “N” scale Christmas layout to view as well as the club’s “HO” scale modular layout. This year, the “O” scale members have created a modular 8’ x 12’ “O” scale layout for your enjoyment. If you have ever liked trains, come see our displays and learn how we create our miniature world.
