The Madison County Historical Society will hold a "November is Model Railroad Month" presentation on Monday October 27th at 7 PM at the History Center at 11 West 11th Street in downtown Anderson Indiana.  
 
The evening will consist of a Power Point Presentation with photos of trains and buildings from older to modern. About the middle of the Presentation, the emphasis will shift to Model Railroading with slides showing many of the advantages of becoming involved in model railroading, and a number of the benefits. There will be models on display showing scale in both locomotives and buildings.
 
The Presentation will close showing views of the basement layouts and 4 or 5 shots from each of several actual model railroads. This will take about 45 minutes and all are welcome especially younger folks. This presentation is geared for people of all ages. If you have younger people who may be interested in the hobby, by all means bring them.  There is no charge and entry is free. Parking is available in the lot across the street and on the street as well.
 
I hope to see many of you at this presentation.

The Madison County Historical Society, Inc.,
11 West 11th Street, Anderson, IN 46016
presents:
 
The Model Railroad Exhibit
 
Do you remember when we rode trains and received them at Christmas?
Do you remember the toy catalogs at Hardware Stores, Sears, Penny’s and Montgomery Ward’s featuring Lionel, Marx and American Flyer?
 
Well, the exhibit at the Madison County History Center at 11th and Meridian in downtown Anderson may help you remember or perhaps you have no knowledge of this history. Then we will help you get a hold on the older memories of others.  
 
Beginning on Friday, November 28th and Saturday the 29th, there will be an exhibit of operating models, displays, and rail history in photos and memorabilia running through December.  
 
The hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM (closed Dec. 24th and 25th) and Saturdays Nov 29th, and December 6th, and 13th - 10 AM to 2 PM
 
On Friday December 5th, we will be open for Winterfest in Anderson from 10 AM  to 7 PM.
 
On exhibit is a replica of a ¼ scale model of the Baker Valve Gear ready to operate on a New York Central Railroad steam locomotive. This is a large wooden setup built by Maurice Lewman, a retired engineer.  
 
Then there is the HO,  On30, O Scale Traction,  O-27 Gauge (Lionel), N scale, S Gauge American Flyer layouts, and an HO Ringling Bros and Barnum, and Bailey 1946 HO scale circus train display, all for your viewing pleasure.  
 
The Big Four (New York Central) ran through Anderson both east and west and north and south, and the Pennsylvania Railroad ran north and south, while the Central Indiana Railway ran east and west. In Alexandria, there was the Nickel Plate running east and west. We have numerous photos on the walls and other memorabilia as well.
 
Come out and see the glory of Model Railroading and look over the photos and memorabilia. Just look for the Railroad Crossbucks and come on in!
 
 
Posted by: Roger_Hensley Posted on: Nov 22nd, 2014, 7:12am
The exhibit opens now in less than a week, so come out and see and enjoy. If you have any kids that might like to see the exhibit, bring them. We are open three Saturdays.
