Model Railroad Club Layouts
We are interested in presenting model railroad layouts of any scale in the El Museo Cultural Exhibit Center as part of the Railroad Art, Photography, and Model Railroad Exhibition for either the month-long time-frame (September 8-30, 2018, running on weekends) or the Weekend History Celebration (September 15-16, 2018). For the weekend event, we are looking for one layout (approximately 260 sq. ft.) to be set-up and operated in the Violet Crown Cinema lobby display room (track-side, next door to El Museo) in conjunction with their Train Film Festival. The Violet Crown manager will feed and hydrate club members exhibiting in their facility. Both facilities are ideal for club layouts with respect to security and excellent public viewing.
