The RIT Model Railroad Club (RITMRC) will host its annual Fall Train on Sunday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the Student Alumni Union on the RIT campus.
The show features vendors, modeling clinics and slideshows. The club’s operating HO-scale Rochester & Irondequoit Terminal Railroad will be open for public viewing. Club members will also be on hand to run trains and answer questions about railroading. General admission is $3, $2 for students and senior citizens, and free for children under 12.
RITMRC was founded by RIT students in 1996 to promote the hobby of model railroading and to preserve Rochester’s rich railroad heritage. The HO-scale Rochester & Irondequoit Terminal Railroad is representative of Rochester and the surrounding areas and features NCE Digital Command Control.
