Join other Harford County railroad enthusiasts in this workshop where students will gather to build a modular model railroad. The focus of this course will be to prepare a large display for the Great Scale Model Train Show at Timonium Fairgrounds on 8-9-10 April 2011. This is an excellent opportunity for model railroaders to get together to work on a common project. Students are not required to have a module to enroll.
A module is a portable section of table-top structure, one part of a large group of like tables - which when assembled form a large and fully operational model railroad. Modules are proving excellent for people with limited home space for a model railroad, yet who also enjoy a large layout. Learn course discusses module construction standards plus building techniques for table construction, electrical wiring, track laying, and scenery. Then build your own 4' x 2' module (compatible with National Model Railroad Association standards) with the goal of operating a full model railroad by the final night. Course fee covers wood framing materials but not scenery and detailing costs. Prerequisite: Model Railroading I or permission of instructor.
