EXPERIENCE THE OLD BOISE MODEL RAILROAD
CLUB TO CANCEL HOLIDAY SHOWS FOR 2020
It is with deep regret that the Board of the Old Boise Model Railroad Club (OBMRC) has cancelled its traditional Holiday Shows for 2020.
Normally held on Saturdays, between Thanksgiving weekend and New Years, the model train shows are attended by thousands of visitors and families – not only from the Treasure Valley, but also by visiting friends and family who all look forward to seeing the trains run.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the rising numbers of infections in the Treasure Valley, and the Governor’s recent reset of public gathering guidelines, the Club has determined that the probable number of visitors, all in close proximity, would make it nearly impossible to safely meet the necessary guidelines during our 2020 Holiday Shows.
Jeff Gowans, OBMRC President, said, "It is with heavy hearts that we, as a club, had to come to this decision. We determined it was not worth the risk to the health of our wonderful visitors and their families. We hope to be able to have an Open House on a weekend in the Spring of 2021.”
The Club had been hoping to show new construction and the recovery of the layout from the ‘Great Flood of 2020’ but will use this time to create even more new scenic areas and details throughout the layout. We will keep everyone up to date on events and club progress in the coming new year.
Happy Holidays and a safe and healthy new year.
Hours: TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
