Model Railroad Club Welcomes Visitors

Even though the holidays are winding down, kids are about head back to school and work vacations are ending, but there's still some time to squeeze in one last little local attraction.
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Even though the holidays are winding down, kids are about head back to school and work vacations are ending, but there's still some time to squeeze in one last little local attraction.

In Waynesboro, the Quincy Village Model Railroad Club is welcoming visitors. They also have something that they can take across the street to the Quincy Health Center.

“What we call our traveling railroad. It's a 35 inch wide by eight-foot long 'n' scale display that we made portable so once a month we pull the wheels up, pull the legs up and put it on the back of a truck and take it over to the health center to entertain the folks over there for an hour, hour and a half,” said Cliff Rau, founder of the Quincy Village Model Railroad Club.

The railroad exhibit fills three rooms, former offices where walls were knocked down, and also one hallway all jam packed with model trains and little villages.

It's something the 25 club members work on three days a week.

And they're expanding.

“We had to take down some walls, there were three rooms here, we took down some walls. We repaired the ceiling and got some new flooring in, and we've started to assemble the display,” said Cliff Rau.

They’re building a brand new exhibit that won't be ready for another two years still.

“I tell everybody, the only thing better than working on it, is to show it,” said Rau.
