The South Shore Model Railway Club, Inc. (est. 1938), is having our Fall Train Show and Club Open House in Hingham, MA this weekend, October 23rd and 24th. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and this Fall Show is second only to our larger Spring Show in producing revenue for our club.

We have 40 dealer tables set up inside the Club, and they will be there both Saturday and Sunday. Also, we have a fine White Elephant Table (actually 9 tables), with new and used trains, books, videos, and extras.

In addition to the Show, there is also an opportunity to examine our new operating HO layout we are constructing in our 50' x 130' layout room. We have built about 1/4 of the finished layout, with much more to come. We also have one of the finest club buildings in the hobby.

There will be demonstration clinics of various HO related activities, plus restrooms are available, along with snacks, coffee, and soda.

The admission is $3.00 for adults, $1.50 for children 6-12 (with adult) and for senior citizens over 65.
