The Ford Model Railroad Club displayed and operated their 1,500 square feet of train tables, to the delight of residents, family, friends and particularly grandchildren at on Saturday, April 21.
Though enjoyed and watched with awe by children in particular, railroading is an adult hobby with members designing, building and maintaining unique train display tables that together fit like one large jig-saw puzzle to cumulatively build a massive train display. Approximately 22 club members assembled the display in three hours, and featured dozens of trains operating in different directions, and through a wide array of scenery and rail tracks, including HOS scale and O gauge trains.
The club was created by Ford Employees and retirees who share an interest in model railroading, and meets monthly.
Henry Ford Village community members also have an active and vibrant on-site model railroad club and train room, featuring an impressive array of trains and display tables. One of over 100 resident led clubs, the members enjoyed sharing their passion with their friends from the Ford Model Railroad Club!
