We are currently closed to visitors due to Covid. Updated: May 27th 2021.


We're open every Friday except the first occurance for the month, which is our meeting night. You will usually find a variety of trains running, especially on the last Friday of the month - which tends to be operations night. We are open from 7PM - 9:00PM unless otherwise noted.


Days other than Friday

We often get asked if we are open other days than Friday. As a non-profit volunteer lead group, we have limited availability. As such, we only guarantee being available on Fridays from 7pm - 9:00pm. Twice a year we hold open houses on Sundays. Sign up for our newsletter or like us on Facebook to learn about these openings.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer special openings for monetary donations. Most members are unable to oblige such requests due to everyday obligations.
