  • Lou Sassi Layout Open House, May 25th 1pm-4pm
    Lou and Cheryl Sassi have graciously provided another opportunity to tour the layout with its updated scenery elements. You will also be able to see up close the vehicle and freight car upgrades that were discussed in his recent clinic. As always we encourage car-pooling. The layout is on the second floor, so steps are involved.

    Please contact Jack Dziadul if you need the street address. It will not be posted on the web.
