10 am - 4 pm

You are invited to the annual Fall Old Boise Model Railroad Club Open House. Over 1800 square feet of N-Scale model trains with a myriad of realistic scenes from the West. And of course, it is free. So get rid of those screen displays, come see something real and in action and learn about the greatest hobby in the world at the historic downtown Pioneer Building.

We're also half way through October, so it's not too early to start thinking about the Holiday Season for 2019.  As always, we hope the Old Boise Model Railroad Club will be an annual part of your family's Holiday Season. We will be open all Saturdays between Thanksgiving and New Year's -so plenty of time to visit more than once.  It's a great break for the kids, if you need to do some shopping and of course, the Old Boise Pioneer Building will have Santa holding court upstairs.  Will send you all the details in the next Newsletter and update the site with more details!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to drop us a line at oldboisemrc@gmail.com
